New Now Next: Cities Have Feelings is an unmissable evening of discussion, ideas and action about cities, including London, Malmö and Dublin. Through conversation and film, Finn Williams, City Architect of Malmö, and artist, poet and broadcaster Rhael “LionHeart” Cape from London will unearth how emotional, physical and social connections between people and their cities are formed and sustained.
Now in its 11th season, New Now Next is an exciting season of live, in-person talks, disseminating new ideas and thinking relevant now and for the future of architecture and society. Material, financial and human resources, public participation, the future of cities and issues of social inclusion and cultural identity are on the agenda of an unprecedented array of speakers for the 2023 season of New Now Next. This is the second event in the series, curated and presented by the Irish Architecture Foundation and supported by Arup.
Cities Have Feelings takes place as part of Open House Dublin, the IAF’s flagship architecture festival.
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.
