Simms’ City will explore the work of Herbert Simms, Dublin City's housing architect from 1932 to 1948. He was responsible for the building of 17,000 homes in Dublin during his tenure. What can we learn from his visionary work? Dr Ellen Rowley (UCD) and Eoin Ó Broin (TD) will speak about Simms legacy and the relevance of his work to our public housing policy debates today.
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. A simple idea can produce a powerful effect. We hope this exhibition will inspire action and produce a lasting legacy. 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.
