2019 Programme, Talk


A series of three lectures per year curated by the IAF and sponsored by ARUP which reveal current, new and next generation ideas and architects from across the globe.

The purpose of these free events is to bring dynamic architects to Dublin to inspire audiences who are interested in the innovative research, design and construction of buildings and cities. New Now Next is about disseminating NEW Ideas, regarding contemporary issues relevant NOW that can impact on the NEXT generation. The profile and calibre of the speakers confirms Dublin as a key destination for the international architecture and built environment scene.

This year, we are proud to announce an ‘A’ list line-up for 2019, which includes:
