STANDARD LIVES

Dates: 28 Oct - 28 Oct

Show Time: 7.00pm

This Future That Never Happened

Standard Lives is a series of talks celebrating the ignored and overlooked side of Irish architecture and design.

Each event is conceived as a ‘live magazine’ bringing together a range of speakers from a variety of different backgrounds.

Four contributors – from the worlds of art, architecture, academia and writing – will make a short presentation on each occasion, with the session’s theme changing from evening-to-evening.

Our second talk in the series adopts the title This Future That Never Happened.
This theme covers the topic of planning (or at least the act of making plans), the ideologies behind the predictions we make and the proposed utopias which were never built.

Approaching the theme from their own unique disciplines and perspectives will be:
Roisín Heneghan (architect, heneghan peng)
Brian Ward (lecturer, DIT)
Seamus Nolan (visual artist, Hotel Ballymun)
Karl Whitney (author, Hidden City).

Regardless of the topic at hand, it is our hope that with each talk we might reveal some of the stories behind the ordinary architecture and everyday icons that shape Irish life. Jumping across scales – from the state of the nation to the state of your manky shower – no aspect of design is understood as being too significant or too small.


 

Running time: 2 hours

Design: Rory Bradley


 

Standard Lives is organised by 2ha magazine / TYPE, and is supported by Irish Design 2015.
