UCD Architecture, Richview, Dublin D14 E099
1—7 June
Building on the nation’s history in educating some of the leading women architects currently practising in Europe, this exhibition has been organised by students of UCD Architecture as a response to a series of critical texts on gender in architecture published since 2016. Gender as a critical theory in the practice and discourse surrounding architecture has been re-emerging in recent years. A student and staff group at UCD Architecture have taken on the topic and developed it into a programme of public events. This group exhibition is seen as the final outcome of this sustained critical discourse, and will feature student work inspired by a series of six publications that provide a feminist critique of spatial practice.

The exhibition is part is part of ‘Gender: An Architectural Agenda’, a student-led programme of events funded by the UCD SPARC initiative and the UCD School of Architecture, Planning & Environmental Policy. The exhibition will run at UCD Architecture, Common Room from 1 – 7 June (Mon – Sat, 10 am – 6pm) and at the RIAI, The Architecture Centre from 12 – 20 June (Mon-Fri, 9am – 5pm) The exhibition is free and open to the public.
