NAMAlab hosts symposium


10th October 2011

NAMAlab 2011 is a project run by a group of Architectural Graduates and Tutors from the Dublin School of Architecture which included mounting a pop-up exhibition, a series of NAMAlands walking tours, idea exchanges and project presentations.  NAMAlab has organized a half-day symposium to take place in Bolton Street on Friday 14th October at which the research and the project will be discussed.  According to Dermot Boyd, who will chair the symposium, “We see the symposium as an opportunity to present our year’s research into NAMA and for all of us as architects to sit down together to discuss this unique situation.  Our three guest speakers – architect Gerry Cahill, planner Ciaran Cuffe, and economist Constantin Gurdgiev – will provide an architectural, political and economic context.  After the presentations from the students and contributions from our speakers, we will have an open discussion which we hope will suggest ways for all of us to become more engaged in NAMA and the social and economic future of our city and country.”

The members of the NAMAlab collective are Dermot Boyd, Helen Rose Condon, Elizabeth Gaynor, Paul Geoghegan, Donal Hickey, Ronan Murray, Paul O’Brien, Michael O’Dell, Janek Ozmin, Dominic Stevens. 

More information on the project is available from NAMAlab Blog and NAMAlab FaceBook page.

NAMAlab has also published a book on the project, which will be launched at the symposium.
