Beyond Pebbledash is both a celebration of an overlooked icon of Dublin (Irish) domestic architecture and a design driven discussion on the future of Dublin urbanism. The Beyond Pebbledash project includes the ‘construction’ of house here in Clark Square the publication of a book (also titled Beyond Pebbledash) and a public engagement programme, targeting young people and Transition Year students.
Public realm improvements in the Grafton Street Quarter are set to continue in 2015 with new plans prepared by City Architects. The latest stage in the wider strategy for the quarter consists of work to the area between Chatham St and the Eastern stretch of Wicklow Street. It will also include Chatham Lane, Balfe Street, Harry Street, and Johnson Court. It envisages a quieter set of streets compared to the bustle of Grafton Street and will include new paving, street furniture, and tree planting in the area.
