Second Annual AIARG Conference Limerick, Schedule Announced
25 January 2013 10:00 am
Limerick City Gallery of Art, the Mechanics' Institute and Pery Square Hotel
In its second annual conference, the All Ireland Architectural Research Group (AIARG) expands its survey of current architectural research in Ireland. Allowing for a broad and inclusive spectrum of architectural research experiences present on the island of Ireland, this symposium aims to empower those engaged in research, to further enable research exchange and collaboration, and to position more clearly and more strongly our research in architecture, through architecture and about architecture. This conference provides two opportunities: firstly, to continue the now-established forum for the presentation and discussion of emerging research; secondly, to foreground, in a special session of the conference, questions about the purpose, process and impact of contemporary architectural research in Ireland, thus reaching beyond the specifics of individual research topics and to focus on issues shared by all engaged in research, be it scholarly or practice-based.
