Trading Spaces: Resources and Dwellings is a new collaboration between the Irish Architecture Foundation and Färgfabriken in Stockholm, set up to support early career architects and practitioners in Ireland and Sweden to exchange knowledge and experience, discussing and confronting questions they face in their work and practices.

What design solutions are emerging in housing to address the question of natural resources and acknowledgement of a planetary boundary? How does an evolving energy imperative change how we think about building resilient housing and communities? How are questions of resource scarcity affecting architecture and landscape architecture practices? Conversely, how can the unique skills of an architect impact and direct our activities in these contexts?

Early career architects (in practice for 2-10 years) who are based in Ireland and Sweden and whose practices engage with the Trading Spaces themes in inventive ways are invited to apply.

Deadline: 21 July, 6pm Irish time

Through the Open Call, 2-3 applicants from Ireland and 2-3 applicants from Sweden will be selected to participate in the Dublin-Stockholm exchange this autumn with expenses paid.

Irish Architecture Foundation

About 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.
