Describing Architecture explores how buildings and spaces are designed and documented. The annual exhibition reveals unseen aspects of architecture as a creative practice, alongside its critical relationship to the visual arts and the work of artists.
This year Memory and Place contains work across a wide range of media including architectural models from award winning practices Carmody Groarke and McGonigle McGrath, drawing studies by students of DIT Architecture and work from a broad spectrum of national and international artists in paintings, photography, mixed-media, audio and film. This collection of work considers how a sense of place is registered and recorded in collective and individual memory, and further asks how a narrative of place both real and imagined can develop.
