Conor Nolan and David Wall

Workshop Description:

This workshop - architypes - aims to seek-out, document and instigate discussion surrounding historic and contemporary architectural typography in Dublin City. It is hoped that the results of this workshop will form part of a typographic tour of Dublin City.

An introductory talk will be given, giving an overview and examples of architectural typography. Depending on numbers, participants will be split into groups of 2 or 3. Each group will photograph, sketch or take rubbings of examples of typography applied to the city’s architecture. Participants will convene for a discussion mid-workshop and on the final day (exact times to be confirmed).

This project will take place over 2 weeks in August, with 2-3 days participation per week. (Exact dates to be confirmed)
