The Theme - The Presence of the Past

How do buildings tell a story of the development of Dublin, from a social, cultural and political perspective? The Presence of the Past aims to tell the story of how cities are created and developed over time while also reflecting on contemporary architecture and what it can tell us about contemporary Dublin. It will also seek to uncover aspects of the past that we can implement in future built environment strategies and policies.

We want you to capture the city through this lens by taking a picture a buildings in the programme that you think reflects something interesting about the time in which it was built or maybe even transcends through time, telling us something about the future.
