Shane O�Toole, Irish Commissioner of the Venice Architecture Biennale, opens Temple Bar 15 season of free public talks by Group 91 Architects...

As part of the Temple Bar 15 special exhibition at the Irish Architectural Archive, members of the renowned Group 91 consortium of architectural practices will present a series of talks giving an overview of their role and work in transforming Temple Bar as Dublin�s Cultural Quarter.

The opening talk on Tuesday 10th October by Shane O�Toole gave a fascinating overview of emerging ideas and trends in urbanism and architecture in the Ireland of the 1980�s, and also explained how Group 91 came into existence and then went on to be selected to undertake the creation of a master plan for regenerating Temple Bar.

The remaining talks will focus on the thinking and contributions of the individual participants and will offer a remarkable insight into the genesis of iconic buildings and spaces including Meeting House Square, the Irish Film Centre, the Ark, Project Arts Centre and Temple Bar Square.
