Open House Dublin’s theme this year, Tomorrows Past: Discover our future heritage.

Heritage is our traditions, preoccupations and values made real. The buildings, streets, squares and parks left behind in our city tell us about the people who came before us. What will the buildings of today tell future citizens about life in 21st century Dublin?

This year Open House Dublin will peel back the layers of Dublin’s built heritage, from medieval streets to Georgian terraces and from residential expansions to industrial revolutions. As well as unearthing historic gems, the theme will ask what will be the legacy of what we build now?

Celebrating the European Year of Cultural Heritage, this year’s Open House Dublin explores the influence of our European neighbours on Dublin’s built heritage: think Dutch billies, Italian neoclassicism, Bauhaus-inspired modernism and more! The programme will also reflect on the increasing influence Irish architects have on Europe and beyond, by featuring Irish architects who are winning significant projects in Europe and Asia.
