For those travelling from Dublin, we have organised a complimentary, return bus from O’Connell Street, more information below. Due to limited availability, pre-booking is essential.

To mark the success of the exhibition ‘There is a forest but my house is built from trees grown far away’, this closing seminar will focus firstly on how can we find a new form of architecture embedded in timber, and secondly where should our focus lie to achieve this?

Chaired by Peter Carroll, Senior Lecturer at the School of Architecture at University of Limerick (SAUL), the seminar will feature presentations from guest and keynote speakers with a command and track record in the utilisation of wood in architecture. The seminar will include discussions on the ongoing timber research from universities across Ireland.

Established in Oslo in 1995, Jensen and Skodvin Architects, Norway realize ideas in the form of built work while contributing to the development of the tectonic culture of architectural profession and with a deep concern for utilising wood.

Established in 1996, Bucholz McEvoy Architects, Ireland are known for their outstanding contribution to timber technology, sustainability and architectural design. Their new administrative office building currently under construction for Toronto and Region Conservation Authority is one such project that will set a benchmark for timber technology and sustainable design in commercial building.

The exhibition will be open from 10am – 4pm on the day and continues until March 25th.
