EVENT ORGANISED BY: Irish Architecture Foundation
ABOUT THE EVENT
Taking place in Dublin on 9 & 10 March, this international conference on architecture, design and community participation will bring together an audience of architects, designers, art practitioners, community workers and anyone interested in the role they can and should play in the design of their city. The conference itself will run on Friday 9 March and speakers include Killian Doherty of Architectural (Field) Office, Ana Jara and Lucinda Correia of Artéria, Stefan Laxness of Forensic Architecture, Hana Loftus of Hat Projects, Alex de Rijke of dRMM and more, chaired by Diarmaid Lawlor, Director of Place at Architecture + Design Scotland.
WHAT THE GLASS-HOUSE WILL BE DOING
As part of a programme of film screenings and workshops accompanying the conference, we’ll host a workshop on Saturday 10 March that explores the complex set of relationships involved in the design of spaces and considers how to create opportunities to empower people through participation and collaboration in the design of the built environment. The workshop will be led by Louise Dredge, our Head of Creative Engagement.
WHAT THE ORGANISERS SAY
“Building on the success of the first conference in 2016, Beyond Participation #2 is a vital discussion about architecture and community. Bringing together innovators, provocateurs and activists, it challenges us to think about democracy, consequence, responsibility and the meaning of the things we design.”
