17.10.09 - One - Day Design Competition

Saturday 17th October, 9.30am-5pm: One-Day Ideas Competition:

     'the Dublin House'

Unit 14, Block C, Smithfield Plaza - 9.30-5.00

All are welcome to participate in a one day design competition in association with Dublin City Council.

It is open to architectural students, graduates, practitioners and all those interested in the design of housing in Dublin .

The competition has filled up fast, but there are a few places left -  so to ensure a space, please email thedublinhouse (at) ymail.com to reserve a place and for further information. 
The competition can be entered as an individual or as a group to a maximum of three members.

The competition will take place on a single day and the brief is to design ‘the Dublin house’ - a new housing typology suitable for infill sites in the historic Georgian city.

The site is on the west side of Lower Dominick Street , currently the site of a Dublin City Council social housing flat complex built in 1970.
Dublin City Council has identified the need to develop a new typology that respects the inherited grain and pattern of the city.  This is a reaction to the poor design quality of many infill schemes, resulting in the loss of appropriate scale and grain where historic plots have been accumulated for development.

Lunch will be provided on the day by Dublin City Council, and now what ? will provide some wine to finish off what will hopefully be a great day!
