What buildings look like behind closed doors

Ireland will probably never again build on the scale it did in recent years and we certainly have plenty to be going on with. Now some people are even calling for some poorly considered buildings to be taken down or used for things they weren’t originally intended for. One proponent of such an idea is architect Alan Mee, who will be giving a walking tour of an area of Dublin – still a secret but rumoured to be a well-known vast development on Dublin’s southern fringes – and looking at how, by “unbuilding” parts of recent developments, or adapting the buildings to new uses, we could create social, cultural, architectural and economic opportunities.
