New Architecture: Ireland is a traveling architecture exhibition that presents the work of six young Irish offices that have emerged during the recent economic crisis. Ireland’s financial woes during this period are well documented and this has had an enormous impact on the construction and design sector. This shift has forced architects/designers to refocus and in this way these bleak times have produced new offices and ways of thinking.
With Ireland’s successful emergence out of the EU/IMF bailout and the new growth of the economy, the tide is now starting to turn. This exhibition presents these new voices in architecture that have weathered the storm and the promise they hold for architecture both in Ireland and internationally. The six offices featured are Culturstruction , Donal Colfer Architects , Sult , Urban Agency , VAV & AP+E .
The exhibition will be officially opened on Monday November 16 at 5 pm by the Irish Ambassador to Sweden, Orla O'Hanrahan. For more, see the KTH-A facebook page .
For the occation of the opening, a public guest lecture by Shelley McNamara of Grafton Architects will also be hosted at the KTH School of Architecture. The lecture will start at 6 pm.
New Architecture: Ireland was conceived, designed and curated by AP+E and was funded by Irish Design 2015 and the Irish Embassy Network . The Stockholm installment of the travelling exhibition is hosted by the KTH School of Architecture .
