Maria Donoghue is an architect and Chairperson of Open House Limerick, an initiative to foster an appreciation and understanding of the value of architectural excellence in the built environment. For the Workspace Social, Maria will chat about Open House Limerick and the international initiative, as well as the artists, architects and spaces involved in this year’s programme.
Don’t forget to bring your lunch! Admission is free & all are welcome.
More about Open House Limerick:
2017 is the sixth year of Open House Limerick and this year’s theme is Architecture is Story. Through what we create, we communicate. We communicate who we are, our intentions and our aspirations – are we creative, innovative, aspirational, considerate, open? We capture our moment in time, our understanding of and investment in the environment we create and how it influences us.
Ormston House is delighted to be the Festival Hub for this year’s edition which launches on Friday 6 October with LSAD graduates Cindy Fogarty, Des Kingston & Tom Shortt. Over the weekend of 6-8 October, there is a programme of FREE events where we encourage people to participate in exploring and learning about our built environment through architect-guided and self-guided tours, walks, talks and exhibitions.
More information about the programme is available here.
About the Workspace Social:
The Workspace Social is a weekly event developed as an alternative format for artists’ talks and networking. Every Thursday, a local or visiting artist is invited to join us for lunch: to discuss a recent project, to share new research or to propose an activity. Participants are welcome to bring along their lunch and to eat with the artist.
