Six Architecture students to represent DIT at Venice Architecture Biennale 2018Posted: 27 April, 2018
Six DIT Architecture students have been selected as part of the Venice Fellowship Programme to take part in the Irish Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale 2018.
Students selected for the Venice Fellowship Programme: David McCarthy, Hannah Misstear, Sean Brunswick, Robert Hamilton, Rory McDonald, and Joanne Cuffe (absent from the photo).
The students of the Dublin School of Architecture, David McCarthy, Hannah Misstear, Joanne Cuffe, Robert Hamilton, Rory McDonald and Sean Brunswick were selected through an open call for applicants. They will each spend three weeks in Venice during the Venice Architecture Biennale, which runs from May 24th to November 26th, 2018. They will share their time between invigilating the Irish Pavilion exhibition and conducting independent research, connected to their own learning in the Dublin School of Architecture.
The selected fellows will be ambassadors for the Irish Pavilion and Ireland during their time in Venice. Invigilators will be responsible for engaging with the large exhibition audience; over 260,000 visitors are expected to visit the exhibition over the six month period. DIT Architecture lecturer Miriam Delaney is a member of the Free Market Curatorial team (with Tara Kennedy, Laurence Lord, Jeffrey Bolhuis, Orla Murphy and JoAnne Butler), who are studying the marketplaces of small Irish towns. The exhibition will return to Ireland in 2019 and will tour a number of the towns selected for the study.
