The theme of the exhibition is the act of making domestic space; investigating innovative ways of housing the modern family in all its variants. As society develops and evolves, the accepted standard of the family house is no longer as relevant as it once was, and as a society we must adapt and grow our housing stock in ways which meet the challenges of this new orthodoxy.
The exhibition will explore a variety of refurbishments, extensions, conversions and new-build housing on urban-infill sites. To reflect the increased prevalence of adaptation and re-use in recent years, it will be hosted in a converted Victorian terrace house which has been re-imagined to provide a contemporary modern dwelling.
The exhibition entitled 'In House' took place on Friday 2nd September 2011 in the Plastic House, 26 Spencer Street North, East Wall, Dublin 3.
