Sharing Architecture 2014 Exhibition Launch & Lecture Series
Official Opening: Monday, June 23 at 5pm
Venue: Atrium - Cork City Hall
Cork City Council Arts Office has embarked on an exciting new initiative entitled ‘Sharing Architecture’. This new collaborative project is using design to investigate the impact of architecture on public utilities and through this on people.
Four architectural practices worked with four end-user groups to redesign a bus stop on the number 208 bus route in Cork.
This exhibition sees their final designs from this collaborative process displayed in the Atrium of Cork City Hall. The exhibition will include images, drawings and small scale models of each group’s final designs.
This free exhibition is open to the public from 9am until 5pm from June 23 to July 19 2014.
We would also like to invite you to two expert lectures being held in conjunction with the exhibition launch.
The first lecture will be presented by Jim Heverin, Director, Zaha Hadid Architects, designer of the Riverside Museum of Transport in Glasgow.
6pm on Friday, June 20 in The Atrium in Cork City Hall
The second lecture will be presented by Something & Son (also known as Andrew Merritt and Paul Smyth). Something & Son are a London practice who specialise in collaborative projects.

The third lecture will be presented by Anne Kiernan, Chief Architect, Railway Procurement Agency.
