Waterford Festival of Architecture


It produces a high quality programme of events that maximises its unique status in Ireland as the only festival of architecture outside of the capital. With an exciting weekend long programme of events to engage local and regional public and specialist audiences, the festival promotes the importance of architecture as an artistic practice.

In 2017 our theme is “Between Spaces” and will celebrate the life of the city through the built environment and encourage the public to engage with the city and its catchment area on a more intimate level with the event’s tours and walks exploring different aspects of the theme in the city.

Through a family and schools programme, specialist lectures and talks, workshops and exhibitions, the Waterford Festival of Architecture continues to grow its profile and audiences by delivering a programme that aims to engage the public with the built environment. Awareness of architecture as an art form is central to the festival. Through these creative collaborations, the festival can demonstrate the necessity for and contributions of, architecture in our daily lives.
