2020 Programme Online event

IAF to take part in Open House Worldwide Festival this month


Dublin will be one of 40 cities represented in this free 48-hour streamed festival of discussions, tours and more.

This week Open House Worldwide announced the full programme of the network’s first collaborative event – a non-stop 48 hour livestream, broadcast from the Open House Worldwide website, with contributions from six continents and more than forty cities from the network and beyond, including Dublin!

Beginning at midnight on Saturday 14 November the festival will open with an introduction by festival coordinator George Kafka, with a digital gathering of representatives from different cities in the network. The rest of the festival is divided into one hour slots and organised into thematic clusters which seek to address the most important issues facing architecture and urbanism today, such as Housing; Infrastructure and Mobility; The Social Life of Cities, and Public Spaces.

The IAF are delighted to contribute two events to the programme, including a Youth Manifesto presented by a panel of 15-18 year olds, which will seek to hold the discipline of architecture to account, within the theme of Climate in Crisis. We are also pleased to have the opportunity to share the ‘Site Specific’ series of films (presented as part of this year’s Open House Dublin) with the global audience who will tune in for Open House Worldwide Festival.
