Dublin City Council Public Realm and Public Housing from 1994 – 2006

The tour will look at social housing and public spaces under former city architect Jim Barrett who described his role as that of an “architectural manager” rather than a designer. This allowed him to divide his energy enabling young talent to deliver innovative schemes across the city. His period in Dublin Corporation coincided with a huge increase in housing demand and a boom in the local authority’s provision of social housing as well as exceptional local authority funding.
