Galway's best buildings open doors for architectural festivalJuly 14, 2009 - 9:00am
GALWAY’S best examples of engaging architectural design will be open to the public when the inaugural Open House Galway architectural festival takes place from October 16-18.
The event, in partnership with the Irish Architecture Foundation, will feature buildings of quality design in the City and its environs including private dwellings, incorporating sustainable materials and innovative design, as well as commercial, public and educational buildings.
“We are delighted to welcome this prestigious event to Galway”, said Patrick McCabe (Simon J. Kelly & Partners), Chairman of Open House Galway. “The aim of the event is to excite the public about architecture and the built environment by stimulating debate and providing access to buildings not normally open to the general public. Buildings are chosen for their design aesthetic, artistic value, innovation and sustainability.”
