Housing provision is a conversation that has transcended time, generations, and governments. A series of 3 panel discussions will debate and examine housing through the lens of architectural history and social evolution from the 20th to the 21st Century. What have we learned from the successes and failures of the past and how do we comprehend the challenge today?
Speakers include: Paul Leech (Gaia Associates), Dr Rory Hearne (Lecturer in Social Policy, NUI Maynooth), Clare Lyster (Chicago School of Architecture, University of Illinois), and Gary Lysaght (Director FKL Architects).
Housing Unlocked is a partnership between the Irish Architecture Foundation and The Housing Agency. The exhibition and programme are curated by the Irish Architecture Foundation. For further information and full engagement programme visit housingunlocked.ie
Established in 2005, the Irish Architecture Foundation (IAF) is an independent organisation dedicated to the promotion of architecture as culture. We encourage people to engage with their built environment, to inspire new ways of thinking about architecture.
We truly believe architecture has the power to improve the way we live and how we think about our built environment. By bringing people together from diverse backgrounds and disciplines, we can create a more inclusive conversation that will inspire a better-built environment for everyone.
