Symposium: Street View: Urban Domestic Architectures, 1700–1900

Dublin is a city whose ‘everyday’ urban character is intimately wedded to its early modern streetscape, and its eighteenth-century redbrick terraces and squares form the most tangible architectural element of that historic legacy. Indeed, recent initiatives of Dublin Civic Trust, the Irish Architecture Foundation and Fáilte Ireland confirm that ‘Georgian Dublin’, as both a trope and a material reality, is increasingly being made legible to, and mediated for, a broad social demographic.

Scheduled for Saturday, 28 September 2013, in the Emmet Theatre, Trinity College, this one day symposium will present new and ongoing research devoted to this building typology, 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 (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).

Date: 28th September 2013
