THE LAST CENTURY – MORE THAN CONCRETE BLOCKS: Dublin city and suburbs in the 20th century

28 September, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm


This seminar will focus on the history of Dublin’s architecture from 1940 to 1973 including the largely overlooked 1940s and 1950s. With a look at specific building case studies and locations, the seminar asks why so much of this period is contentious.
