Victorians, Part 2: historical–architectural walking tour
Victorians, Part 2: historical–architectural walking tour.
Victorian and Edwardian Architecture around Trinity College, College Street, D’Olier Street, Westmoreland Street, College Green and surrounding area - Sunday 31 March 2019 at 11:30
A survey of Dublin’s great 19th century insurance company, ecclesiastical and bank architecture, in the area of its greatest concentration, this tour takes place on the only day it’s peaceful and pleasant to view and enjoy it: on a Sunday!
This is an adaptation of a tour on Victorian architecture that I recently designed and led for DIT/TUD School of Art and Design. We will cover the main concepts and nuances of Victorian (and Edwardian) design thinking, its principles and ideals, yet made fun and accessible in our usual relaxed, highly sociable Dublin-Decoded style.
Everyone is very welcome. We’ll only run this tour one or two times per year. So come and join us if you can.
