Architectural Migrations

Architectural Migrations 22Oct

Dr Claire Kinsella (Staffordshire University) considers the tensions and contradictions between Irish identity, migration and the high-rise built form.

Often viewed as a rural backwater, Ireland’s connectivity with low- and high-rise regeneration, global corporations and digital futures seems at odds with this potentially outdated reputation. Dr Kinsella posits the idea that urban, high-rise living did not migrate to the imaginations of most Irish politicians -or even the urban fabric- as Ireland currently struggles with urban sprawl. Challenging perceptions about Irish ruralism and shining a light on international examples, this talk reveals where Irish people have actively built such structures.
