Specificity and Place The Dublin Seminar, The Long Room Hub


Tuesday, February 22, 2011


Tuesday 22 February, 1-2pm


The Dublin Seminar, The Long Room Hub 

Event Information

Alan Mee (Urban Agenda), an architect working in urbanism, architecture and education,  will give a lecture in 'The Dublin Seminar Series' in TCD's new  Long Room Hub on "Specificity and Place" on Tuesday 22 February, 1-2pm. The lecture explores specificity in the Dublin context as well as the impact of rapid unchecked change, which has led to a form of spatial chaos. In reviewing the analysis of these new and fast changing spatial conditions at various scales, it is possible to assess impacts on Irish specificity in design, across jurisdictions, their places, and their urban form.

Alan Mee runs a design practice, which responds to the increasing demand for organising systems and design quality in development. Alan edits and writes Urban Agenda, an on-line forum for urbanism and a regular column in Architecture Ireland, the journal of the RIAI. He has published and spoken nationally and internationally on the particularities of the recent dramatic changes in the Irish designed environment.  He is also Director of the Urban Design Masters programme at University College Dublin.

The Dublin Seminar is a free event. Bookings can be made by contacting Dr Jason McElligott, The Long Room Hub, TCD, E jmcellig@tcd.ie.
