Re-Drawing Dublin: IAF Web & Street Project


To celebrate the launch of Re-Drawing Dublin, a book by Paul Kearns and Motti Ruimy, the IAF are embarking on an exciting NEW web and street project in winter 2011, and we need you to participate!

The book that inspired the audience poll, Re-Drawing Dublin, is about city making. Through the IAF poll and discussion forum, you will have the opportunity to reveal the real truth about how Dublin City is designed and functions from your perspective. Each week you will be asked one question in our online poll, related to the provocative and engaging themes revealed in the book.

As the finale, the 10 week web project moves onto the streets in March 2011. Sponsored by JC Decaux, Metropanels in the city will contain snapshots from the book with the results of the IAF web poll. The on-street exhibition will challenge policy makers and citizens to confront Dublin’s urban contradictions, to see and tell it as it is, not as it is imagined or believed to be.

Get involved, it is your chance to have a say! Poll starts Tuesday 7 December!

This web and street project is made possible by JC Decaux and the Irish Architecture Foundation.
