Temple Bar 15 exhibition extended to early March...

Temple Bar 15 - A retrospective photographic exhibition of Temple Bar to celebrate the 15 year anniversary of the regeneration of the Temple Bar area has been extended to early March at the Irish Architectural Archive, 45 Merrion Square, Dublin 2.

The photographs in the exhibition, entitled �Temple Bar 15�, date from 1985, a period when the proposal to transform Temple Bar into a bus station was being given serious consideration. They reflect the area as it was then - a collection of decomposing buildings, surface car-parks and abandoned properties. The objective of the exhibition is to celebrate the physical regeneration of the area over the last 15 years.

Also on display is an architectural model of Group 91�s winning framework development proposal for the regeneration of the area in 1991.

Group 91 consisted of a consortium of 8 emerging architectural practices who submitted a collective proposal to rebuild Temple Bar. The exhibition is being hosted by the Irish Architectural Archive in partnership with Temple Bar Cultural Trust (TBCT), formerly Temple Bar Properties.
