On Saturday, 28 September 2013, in the Emmet Theatre, Trinity College will host a one day symposium that will present new and ongoing research devoted to the building typology of Dublin’s eighteenth-century redbrick terraces and squares, with special focus on the circumstances of its design, production and consumption. It will also address its nineteenth-century progeny and related British contexts, and reflect on the place of the historic urban house within Dublin’s contemporary architectural identity.
Speakers will include: Dr Conor Lucey (TCD) – convenor; Andrew Foyle (Ind.); Melanie Hayes (TCD); Dr Susan Galavan (TCD); Dr Olivia Horsfall Turner (The Survey of London/English Heritage); Laura Johnstone (UCD); Dr Anthony Lewis (GlasgowLife Glasgow Museums); Dr Eve McAulay (Irish Architectural Archive); Owen O’Doherty (Dublin City Council); Dr Patrick Walsh (UCD).
Admission is free but booking is advisable.
