Friday, 28.06.19 at 19.00, Conference Space

Houses in Motion: Architecture and Patterns of Dwelling

Presented by Hugh Campbell, Professor of Architecture at the School of Architecture, Planning and Environmental Policy, UCD. Architectural Historian Dr Ellen Rowley, who is consultant editor of the 2019 DAVIS NOW LECTURES: MAKING HOME series will introduce and chair the event.

The Davis Now Lectures 2019 is a series of 5 public talks recorded at venues across the country for subsequent broadcast on RTÉ Radio 1.  Each lecture will look at the culture of Making Home by leaders in the areas of psychology, theatre performance, history, technology and economics. The series is being produced in association with University College Dublin and the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland.

Hugh Campbell’s lecture will consider how we think about home depends on where we are coming from in our own experience and how our relation to home is at the heart of how we live and imagine ourselves in the world.  Among examples Campbell will refer to will be architecture in Ireland and Japan as well as examples from literature and cinema, including the house from the recent Oscar-winning film Roma.


There will be opportunity for Q+A from the audience.
