Sarah Doheny

Sarah Doheny is a Part III architect and artist based in Navan, and forms one half of Cineál: Research + Design. Cineál is the Irish word for kind: they believe in the potential to design in a more thoughtful and considered way, in understanding architectural space at a human level and how and why it makes us feel a certain way. Sarah’s past academic research has been focused on architecture and the senses, memory, psychogeography and mapping through the act of walking. Her solo work has involved the collection of field recordings and experimenting with the production of soundscapes often incorporating found sounds.

After a period of pause over the December break, January is an inevitable period of reflection. This period presents an opportunity to seek new channels of learning and inspiration, laying the foundations for the year to come. With a consciousness of the environmental responsibility of the architectural profession, themes of sustainability and the circular economy continue to be at the forefront of our minds at Cineál. Sustainment Experiments: The Plot, a public artwork by Deirdre O’Mahony at Visual Carlow, plants sainfoin, an animal fodder which has many beneficial attributes for livestock, soil and biodiversity, on potato crops. It has been planted “to inspire and change cultural attitudes to farming and climate change”

A workshop from the Irish Green Building Council, in partnership with Atlantic Technological University (ATU), Technological University Dublin (TU Dublin) and the University of Galway (UG) and funded by the EPA, will take place in Limerick entitled the National Circular Economy Roadmap. Themes will include circular materials and resources; circular design processes and procurement; circular business models; circular renovation and retrofit.

The Irish Georgian Society, whose purpose is to promote awareness and the protection of Ireland’s architectural heritage and decorative arts, will host two talks in January that do just that. The first, delivered by Dr. Melanie Hayes, will present the initial phase of building at Henrietta St.

The second, by author David Caron, will explore the story of Michael Healy, stained glass pioneer at An Túir Gloine (The Glass Tower). Healy’s work paved the path for successive stained-glass artists such as Harry Clarke.

As we stretch out from one year into the next, why not engage in a corporeal re-awakening? A movement in space workshop at the Solstice Navan offers a mindful introduction to the new year. The Grafton Architects designed building presents us with a metaphor for renewal. The building “born as a theatre and courthouse and re-born as a theatre and gallery” following a brief change during construction, reminds us to continually evolve.
