Momentum is the title of an exhibition within the IAF's gallery space at 15 Bachelor's Walk that endeavours to create a space, physically and introspectively, to document, contextualise and introduce to the public, the work of emerging architects and collectives, around whom exists a growing critical and curatorial consensus.
The Momentum architects chosen are re-imagining the future of architecture practice, and their work demonstrates a high degree of sensitivity to context, to the environment, and to the public.
The intimate space of the gallery at the IAF base on Bachelor's Walk allows the architect to test a theory, revisit an old idea afresh, or present a proposition that can enhance their practice beyond the exhibition. The IAF gallery is used as a stopping off point, a paused moment for reflection on the way to something significant.
We are delighted to announce that the planned exhibitions in this series by Noreile Breen, TOB Architect, and plattenbaustudio, postponed last year due to public health restrictions, will now take place in summer 2021, from Friday 9 July - Sunday 29 August.
The exhibition will be supported by the beautiful publication 'Momentum', designed by Peter Maybury

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.
