‘Shaping Galway’ is a free interactive workshop led by Islander Architects exploring the tools of spatial organisation & land use zoning in Galway City through abstract compositions.
Unleash your creativity through studies in composition to piece together your vision of the city. Participants will create a personal zoning strategy to depict what is important to them in order to maintain a vibrant city centre. Learn how future developments are controlled through land use zoning objectives & explore the value in community-led approaches.
Islander Architects will demonstrate how to create unique architectural diagrams using basic shapes & colours to express your hopes & ambitions for Galway. We invite you to make a case for the characteristics of the city that need to be protected & cared for.
Drop by The Mick Lally Theatre & join us in creating a vibrant & healthy mixed use city.
Take your personal zoning strategy home with you.
