Open House Galway 2012

Open House Galway continues to adapt and grow, to show case the best of the Architectural heritage in Galway City and County. This year’s expanded and varied programme reaches out, from the city centre to architectural gems in the county. Roddy Mannion’s talk, “Galway – a Sense of Place” is sure to provoke debate and discussion. The Children’s Workshop with Elaine Mahoney in the Clever Box Club, so popular last year, returns again. The showcase Exhibition, “House – 21st Century Homes in the West” is sure to excite and delight. Architectural City Tours are themed again, guided by experts in the field of Spiritual, Drama, Docklands, Waterways and University. To compliment the showcase Exhibition, they are holding a Passive House Seminar and Design Clinic. New to the programme is a Cycling Tour featuring contemporary houses in Galway.

Other highlights include the Marine Institute, Claregalway Castle, Mutton Island and for fun an Edible Architecture Competition.
