Park(ing) Day Dublin

Architecture Republic were one of 20 participants in the 2nd Park(ing) Day Dublin where 20 car spaces in the city were allocated for alternative uses. Our idea was to create a playspace in the city. We set out a giant tic-tac-toe board with recylced bicycle wheels as playing pieces. The city should have more space for recreation.

In House Exhibition

The theme of the exhibition is the act of making domestic space; investigating innovative ways of housing the modern family in all its variants. As society develops and evolves, the accepted standard of the family house is no longer as relevant as it once was, and as a society we must adapt and grow our housing stock in ways which meet the challenges of this new orthodoxy.
