Public Age Call Out

Deadline for submissions is Friday 2 December

Public space should be designed with everyone in mind, but sometimes our public spaces let us down as we get older.

Public Age is an open call out for architect-led multidisciplinary teams to explore how our public spaces can work better for older people to ensure our public spaces contribute to, rather than inhibit, our health, wellbeing and positive ageing. Public Age is commissioned by the dlrCountyCouncil/HSE Arts and Health Partnership, with additional grant-aid support from the Arts Council, and run by the Irish Architecture Foundation. 

The winning team will begin work on this collaborative project in January 2017 and with a budget of €20,000 will create something imaginative and memorable to highlight the importance of inclusive public space.
