Site Specific Series

A special collection of short documentaries that celebrate the architecture of Dublin, commissioned by the Irish Architecture Foundation and produced by Dyehouse Films.


The series reveals the personalities, processes, complexity, creativity and transformative impact that surround the act of designed space. The protagonists: the site, the architect, the historian, the user, speak directly to the camera – they speak directly to us.

Site Specific crosses the city, scales and building types, from a play park to a hidden bar on a university campus, from social housing and a place of worship to a much-loved icon of Dublin city. Taken individually, each 5-minute video has something of the condensed power of a short story.

The Site Specific Series was made with the generous support of the partners, sponsors and supporters of Open House Dublin 2020.
