National Pavilion of Ireland at Biennale Architettura 2016
The Irish Pavilion at the 15th International Architecture Biennale is a collaboration between Níall McLaughlin and Yeoryia Manolopoulou. Their exhibition at the Arsenale, titled Losing Myself, imagines the Niall McLaughlin Architects designed Alzheimer’s Respite Centre in Dublin as experienced by its occupants: people with dementia and their carers. Using time-based projection, the installation will redraw the experience of the plan of the Respite Centre, as collectively witnessed by sixteen people using the building over the course of one day. Losing Myself is part of an ongoing research project by Niall and Yeoryia and runs at the Biennale from 27 May – 27 November 2016.
