Open Heart City Collective

The Open Heart City Collective organises events to equip M.Arch. students and the architectural design teams to find ways to work with the socio-economic, political and cultural constraints in order to facilitate a creative response that can move within those contexts to design a liveable future for the precarious and vulnerable heart of Ireland’s capital city. The work of the Collective is guided by the question ‘How do we act in this space?’ A question we hold with an open heart.
