Alongside Hidden Rooms, November also saw two presentations from City Architect Ali Grehan on design in the city. The first took place in Shanghai at the Pc-House Modern Design Awards, where she presented an outline of house typologies in Dublin, from the earliest ‘Dutch Billies’ right through to contemporary schemes such as Thornton Heights and Dublin House. The second presentation took place closer to home, as part of Defuse Dublin 2014, and dealt with the ‘Architectural Criteria’ outlined in the city’s development plan.
