“The Open Heart City Exhibition is an event featuring the work of over 40 Masters of Architecture students from University College Dublin and Queens University Belfast relating to the site of the former Magdalene Laundry on Sean McDermott St.
This exhibition will showcase analysis, drawings and models undertaken by the students in 2020. The exhibition will also include research carried out by CoLab81-7 who, with the support of the Irish Arts Council and Justice for Magdalenes Research, have been investigating how the heritage of these sites of conscience should be acknowledged and explored in order to inform their future role in the lives of our cities.
Please note that there will be no access to the existing laundry buildings or wider site as part of this exhibition. Access will only be permitted to the temporary exhibition space within the Crinan Youth Project building on Sean McDermott St.
Tours will be every 30mins starting at 12pm. Pre-book only. Booking open 28th September. Check back here!
