How can architects help generate a new approach to how we create homes, and how do we keep people at the centre of the process?
Join a discussion on the future of homes and the power of architecture to serve societies featuring panelists Dominic Stevens, Sam Bishop and hosted by HOME\SICK curator Ali Grehan.
Dominic Stevens is an Irish architect who created Irish Vernacular to spark a change in house-design and build and share open source designs for a home with a total construction cost of €25,000.
Sam Bishop studied architecture, but now coordinates Happenings, a Dublin events company specialising in open-air cinema, music & community events in public space. He is a founding member of Upstart, the arts collective that built Granby Park which was a temporary park in Dublin City Centre in 2013. He is co-founder and coordinator of Street Feast, the national day of street parties.
