NAMAlab pop-up exhibition opens under Central Bank
12th July 2011
NAMAlab is a collective of DIT architectural graduates and tutors, reacting to NAMA and its effect on the city of Dublin. The members of the collective have come together as part the Dublin School of Architecture Thesis Project. Their first pop-up exhibition opened in June in Kings Inn Street and now the public has a second opportunity to visit the exhibition in a new venue on Cope Street, immediately under the shadow of the Central Bank.
According to Helen Rose Condon, who is one of those involved, “NAMAlab is about re-imagining the potential of those sites that we believe NAMA now holds through a series of viable pieces of Architecture that respond to Dublin city in a societal rather than fiscal way. With the ethos of transparency, we are in the process of putting together an exhibition, a publication and a symposium under the title NAMAlab. We were lucky to secure a new workshop space to exhibite our work, hold lectures and generate a debate around the societal nature of NAMA sites in Dublin. The new venue is at 1 Cope Street, Dublin 2, and we have it until the 17th of July.”
