The Liffey quays are a unique space in Dublin, this exhibition aims to stimulate conversations about how the Liffey quays can be re-imagined for the XXI Century City, emphasising the important link between urban design and the experience of space.
XXI Century Liffey: Connector and Divider is the first of two planned exhibitions for 2012 by urban designers and planners Fergus Browne and David Jordan. The work to be showcased is the product of the Urban Nexus Initiative which was established in 2010. The central aim of the initiative is to investigate why certain spaces in our cities fail to be as successful as others and to respond to this with design solutions.
This exhibition holds a mirror up to the Liffey quays, illustrating a raw image of reality, by demonstrating various approaches taken in examining the current dynamics of the space.
The launch party will be held on Thursday 3rd May at 6.30 pm. at Darc Space, 26 North Great George’s Street, Dublin 1 and will be opened by award-winning architect and television personality Duncan Stewart. The exhibition will run until Saturday 26th May.
The exhibition is funded by Dublin City Council and the Dublin City Business Association with support from the Dublin Civic Trust and the Irish Architecture Foundation.
