Sharing Architecture 2014 Exhibition Launch & Lecture Series

Cork City Council Arts Office has embarked on an new initiative entitled ‘Sharing Architecture’. This new collaborative project is using design to investigate the impact of architecture on public utilities and through this on people.

Four architectural practices worked with four end-user groups to redesign a bus stop on the number 208 bus route in Cork. The architects involved are: Kate Dowling and Ruth Fortune; Paula Kelleher, Martin McCarthy and Seoidín O’Sullivan; Makeshift Architecture; and The Stephen Sullivan Team.

This exhibition sees their final designs from this collaborative process displayed in the Atrium of Cork City Hall. The exhibition will include images, drawings and small scale models of each group’s final designs. This free exhibition is open to the public from 9am until 5pm from June 23 to July 19.

As part of the initiative, there is a short lecture series being held in conjunction with the exhibition launch.
