We are delighted that Yeoryia has been appointed Curator of Ireland's representation at the 15th International Architecture Exhibition in the Venice Biennale 2016. Yeoryia will work closely with the Commissioner of the project Niall McLaughlin Architects to explore architecture's role in understanding, representing and designing spaces for people with Alzheimer's. The project, entitled 'Losing Myself', responds to the Biennale's overall theme REPORTING FROM THE FRONT, set by Alejandro Aravena. It will comprise a central architectural piece for Venice, an on line project bringing together different scientific disciplines, and a social media campaign extending the influence of the Biennale piece to a broader audience.

Demolition and clearance works have started at York Rise. Completion expected in Spring 2016.

Yeoryia will chair a lecture and discussion with Kunlé Adayemi as part of the Irish Architecture Foundation’s series NEWNOWNEXT Agents for Change 2015. NEWNOWNEXT is about ‘bringing world leading architects to Dublin to discuss innovative research, design and how we can go about transforming the built environment’. Kunlé’s recent work includes the acclaimed Makoko Floating School, an innovative floating structure in the lagoon heart of Lagos. Event details: 19 November 2015, 6:30pm, at Number Six, Kildare Street, Dublin 2.
