Thursday 28th March, 7.30pm
Theatre Q, Newman Building, UCD
O Donnell + Tuomey are the second of three architects that will speak as part of an inaugural UCD Master of Architecture Lecture and Masterclass Series, in 2019.
The lecture series is free and all are welcome to attend the lectures whether directly involved in architecture, education or not. A key aim of the lecture series is to share the work and practice of architects and students in education with a broader audience. UCD Architecture is therefore pleased to offer a series of public talks to which all are welcome to discuss, consider and debate ideas in architecture, ideas which inevitably impact and enrich our individual and collective daily lives.
The UCD Master of Architecture Masterclass Series is supported by Dublin Port Company as part of the Dublin Port Perspectives Program. The lecture series is presented in association with the Architectural Association of Ireland.
