“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’.

Join us at the fourth in the series to talk about Housing and the City with David Madden.

David Madden is co-author, with Peter Marcuse, of In Defense of Housing. He is Associate Professor in Sociology and Co-Director of the Cities Programme at the London School of Economics. He works on urban studies, political sociology, and social theory. His research interests include housing, public space, urban restructuring, and critical urban theory.

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.
