“Ethically, an open city would of course tolerate differences and promote equality but would more specifically free people from the straitjacket of the fixed and the familiar, creating a terrain in which they could experiment and expand their experience” – Richard Sennett, Building and Dwelling

Taking this statement by Richard Sennett as a point of departure, the Irish Architecture Foundation invites you to a series of public conversations and speculations on Dublin as an ‘open city’.  Each day a group of hosts and guests will gather at lunch around a newly commissioned and made table. 

Join us at the first in the series to talk about Ageing and the city with Rose Anne Kenny.

A geriatrician by training, Rose Anne Kenny is the founding Principal Investigator of Ireland’s largest adult population study on the experience of ageing in Ireland – The Irish LongituDinal study on Ageing (TILDA), now in its 12th year of data collection.

Places are limited and must be booked in advance. There are five conversations in the Open Table series and each must be booked separately. Lunch will be provided and booking opens 14 September.

Accessibility Information

The venue is wheelchair accessible and has accessible toilets. However please note that the location is in Temple Bar which contains cobblestone streets. If you have any access needs please contact for assistance.
