Explore themes of data entanglement with ANNEX and friends at the IAF Summer School in Galway and online this July.
This year’s Summer School is informed by themes explored in Entanglement, the Irish Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale 2021. Curated by ANNEX Collective, Entanglement is now on show at the Fairgreen Gallery in Galway as part of the Galway International Arts Festival. Its themes include the physicality of data infrastructure, exchange and communication, and the environmental, cultural and human impact of data.

Irish Architecture Foundation
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.
