Introduced by Nathalie Weadick, Director, Irish Architecture Foundation.

The spaces we create, internal or external, have never been tested like this before, revealing architecture’s great central responsibility – the potential to shape lives for the better. This online event was influenced by the article Architects on Lockdown by Gemma Tipton published in The Irish Times on the 18th of April.  We invited the contributors of the article to continue the conversation they started in print and to bring it online to sow the seeds for a way forward.

This event is brought to you free of charge by the IAF as part of our online programme Project 20×20 – A Year Like No Other. To be first with information on forthcoming Project 20×20 events sign up for our newsletter and please consider leaving a donation.
