Event Information




‘Slow Architecture and Place’ explores responses to the current challenges of our built
environment such as rediscovering the joy of making and building, and observing more
closely the patterns and rhythms of a place. It investigates how we can encourage
people and communities to take time to make a place their own. The context is our
recent building climate, where the making of buildings has been influenced by time,
speculation and financial deadlines. Our appreciation of architecture, and perhaps too
our sense of place, has been largely anaesthetised by this speed of construction.
Architect Mike Haslam, of the curatorial team s.a.r.c. says: “This exhibition and research
project should be a timely reminder to us all of the importance of thoughtful design in
forming our built environment and, as a travelling exhibition, enjoys both the participation
of design professionals and the general public alike”.

Participating Artists and Architects:

Caelan Bristow, Róisín de Buitléar, Michael Carroll, Donaghy + Dimond architects,
Susan Dunford, Seán Harrington Architects, Emmet Kenny.
