And how has architecture validated that idea? Living on Campus is the first architectural history of this critical building type. For centuries, academic leaders in the United States asserted that on-campus living enhanced the moral character of youth; that somewhat dubious claim nonetheless influenced the design and planning of these ubiquitous yet often overlooked campus buildings.
Against the backdrop of sweeping societal changes, communal living endured because it bolstered networking, if not studying. Housing policies often enabled discrimination according to class, race, and gender, despite the fact that deans envisioned the residence hall as a democratic alternative to the elitist fraternity. Yanni focuses on the dormitory as a place of exclusion as much as a site of fellowship, and considers the uncertain future of residence halls in the age of distance learning.
He has often used the beach as a laboratory to experiment with new cameras and techniques. So far example, when he changed from black and white to medium format color in the early 80s his first major project was about New Brighton, a run down seaside resort near Liverpool. In recent months he has started exploring the beach with the aid of a telephoto lens.
This lens is rarely used in the world of art and documentary photography so it is a challenge to find new ways of using it. Often this involves incorporating the vegetation on the perimeter with the beach as a backdrop, both in and out of focus. So over his long career he has tried everything from a close up macro lens, a medium format wide angled camera and finally this latest offering with the telephoto. Edited by Almut Grunewald. It comprises some 16, letters, 10, photographic prints and negatives, a wealth of other papers, and a vast library. This new book offers a revaluation of Sigfried and Carola Giedion-Welcker work, impact, and lasting significance.
Editor and contributors were the first to draw fully on the estate, which has been opened entirely to researchers only recently. Established in after the end of World War I, the Bauhaus sought to erode distinctions between crafts and the fine arts through a program of study centered on theory and practical experience. The exhibition is curated by Maristella Casciato. The scientific symposium will be dedicated to the theme "Contemporary interventions in cultural heritage: theory and practice". GOALS The rehabilitation of the built heritage has become the central activity in the construction sector in Portugal.
The recent pressure from tourism and speculation has accelerated this phenomenon, principally in historic centers, in classified and protected areas; however, not always with respect for the authenticity and integrity of existing built cultural heritage. Challenges arise in reconciling the preservation of heritage values with contemporary demands. This problem is common in all Europe and has received special attention from ICOMOS, leading to several actions, aimed to improve the quality of the interventions.
It is a goal of the symposium to publicize these actions and to extend the reflection, through a critical assessment of the situation, from an international perspective. In particular, it is intended to question the relationship between theory and practice, in different dimensions: in teaching, in legislation, in management, in planning, in design and in rehabilitation work.
Experts from various European countries will come forward to present their vision on the main problems they face today, the good and bad practices, contributing to a joint reflection and approach to a state-of-the-art in Europe, on contemporary interventions in cultural heritage. Registration includes: certificate of attendance to symposium, coffee-breaks and book of abstracts. Haus Am Horn is the world first example of Bauhaus architecture and the only architecture that the Bauhaus realized in Weimar. The new permanent exhibition highlights the history of the building itself and contains numerous references to themes and items presented at the Bauhaus Museum and Neues Museum Weimar.
The Haus Am Horn was built in as a test house for the Bauhaus exhibition. Here, the masters and students presented for the first time how they imagined contemporary building and living. It exemplified the idea of creating a work of art collaboratively through the interplay of architecture and furniture design. The exhibition presents the house as it was originally conceived without glossing over the subsequent alterations made by its former residents. The restoration works began in The conservators returned the building and property as close to its original condition of as possible.

Every summer season, the sun-drenched coasts of Bulgaria and Croatia turn into densely inhabited, intensively exploited tourism industry hotspots. This book traces the various architectural and urban planning strategies pursued there since the mid s, in order first to create then to further develop modern holiday destinations. It portrays late- modern tourism architecture and resorts of a remarkable quality and typological diversity, which have persisted both as a playground for the domestic labour force and as a viable product on the international market.
Yet the authors focus above all on how, in the wake of political change and the privatization of business, individual resorts and outstanding buildings have been economically and physically restructured, in a myriad of ways, leaving a legacy of deserted ruins, cautious renovations, exorbitant conversions and on-going public protest. With photographs by Nikola Mihov, Wolfgang Thaler, et al. Text provided by the publisher. Both reveal striking features of her architecture and her thought, with its extraordinary fusion of European modernism and Brazilian popular culture. The exhibition seeks to position Lina as a versatile and multidisciplinary intellectual and a true thinker of the culture of her time.
For this reason, a special section of the show is dedicated to MASP. Porto, Portugal , which intends to reflect on the ethos, the proper nature of Architecture. There he explores his interest in Portuguese Architecture, erudite and popular, as a condition of modernity. For this purpose, the design process of the Dr. The exhibition, which has an itinerant character, will travel to other destinations in South America, and will later be presented in Portugal and Spain.

Docomomo International wishes to convey the most sincere condolences at the passing of the Chinese-American architect, Ieoh Ming Pei, to his family and friends. Ieoh Ming Pei, known as I. Pei, died yesterday at the age of His most notable work is the Louvre Pyramid.
Born in Suzhou, China, I.
Pei founded his own practice in , then known as I. He has commented that "the important distinction is between a stylistic approach to the design; and an analytical approach giving the process of due consideration to time, place, and purpose. The architects also conceived an entirely new building and a surrounding park, which has become a key element of social life on campus. Through essays and an interview with Martin Duplantier, the book also explores the interplay of preservation and renovation and demonstrates how this exemplary contemporary redesign can be taken as a model for this sort of planning.
Preface by Peter Todd, afterword by David Chipperfiled. Photographs by Cyrille Weiner. This book answers that need and kicks off a new series, Conserving Modern Heritage, aimed at sharing best practices.
The projects also represent a range of environmental and economic contexts. Some projects benefit from high levels of heritage protection and access to funding, while others have had to negotiate conservation with stringent cost limitations. All follow a rigorous conservation approach, beginning with a process of investigation and diagnosis to identify causes and target repairs, balanced with conservation requirements to preserve significance.
During these days, Barcelona became the epicenter of a wide range of activities related to the world of architecture and the city. For more information, please visit the website. You can check the agenda in the website. The publisher explains that the choice of the date as the temporal beginning of a modern and contemporary Architectural Map refers to the year of the 1st National Congress of Architects in Lisbon, which assembled many architects who came to affirm the principles of the Modern Movement.
A set of architectural examples, which include interior or exterior built spaces, public or private, are located and referenced in the Lisbon Architecture Map The presentation of the Lisbon Architectural Map will be held on the 10 th May, p. As a gathering of the youth of the world, the Olympics did not only promote modern sport, athletic competition and spectacle, but also the idea of international understanding, confraternity, joy, and, most of all, peace.
Still, the Games instrumental and commercial implications add an ambivalent notion to these noble goals. The cultural and historic value of the former sites of the Olympic Games is without doubt. Most of the sites are recognized and protected as historic ensembles or individual monuments. However, the Olympics are not to be reduced to the famous stadiums, sports facilities, Olympic villages and parks. The events led to the construction and installation of numerous buildings, art works and infrastructures, which changed the appearance and workings of the respective guest cities, but are hardly appreciated as integral and original part of the Olympic heritage today.
We think it is worth to direct attention to these smaller and less known objects and to assess them as part of the broader historic context as well as individual cultural accomplishments. What happened with these objects specifically after the games where closed? What potential do they bear to tell a more detailed, more complex or altogether different story of the modern Olympic Games than the wellknown iconic big buildings?
In which way should we treat these objects as we are embracing our heritage? And what, by extension, could be our role as the emerging generation of care-takers in regard to the legacy of the late 20th century generally? As part of the ICOMOS conference, we call for the submission of poster proposals for an exhibition and presentation which will take place in the context of scientific conference.
We ask for contributions which are focused on individual objects, be them architecture, infrastructure, art, public installations or design. The th anniversary of the Bauhaus, this important event for the arts, architecture and art education, provided the setting for numerous festive events worldwide. The Bauhaus was founded in on the ruins of the First World War and under the dramatic circumstances of the Weimar Republic, which, like the Bauhaus, remained alive until the Nazi dictatorship in The Bauhaus is therefore a unique, non-repeatable educational and cultural experience of the European interwar period.
In the 14 years of its eventful history, the school contributed decisively to the shaping of artistic and aesthetic orientations in the 20th century and, as a "classical" variant of our modern tradition, forms a fundamental point of reference up to the present day. However, the Bauhaus was not only a laboratory of industrial design and production and the development of a "machine style", but also formed the framework for multiple ideological approaches and political orientations with a view to creating a new social unity that would result in a new humanism. The Bauhaus was not one, but many, hence its aftermath as a point of reference and source of study and inspiration.
This is the main motive of the Athens Conference. Two topics will be dealt with in the three days of the meeting: The first topic is the Bauhaus reception in Greece and other countries before and after the Second World War. In the special case of Greece, the influences of modern European culture on the arts, architecture and art education during these periods will be discussed. About 65 congress participants from Greece and abroad had contributed to these topics. Invited guests from the fields of art and architectural history had addressed the character and significance of lesser-known aspects of Bauhaus history.
In August , on the occasion of the first major Bauhaus exhibition in Weimar, two concerts with works of modern "classical" music by avantgarde composers of the time such as Ernst Krenek, Paul Hindemith, Ferruccio Busoni and Igor Stravinsky took place. It was, so to speak, a musical counterpart of the Bauhaus, on the basis of a musical paradigm that would later be branded as "degenerate".
These concerts were performed again in the Benaki Museum in the evening, in conclusion of each congress day. The last evening were dedicated to the jazz music of that time, which was known to be one of the musical preferences at the Bauhaus. The artistic director of the Athens Bauhaus evenings was conductor George Petrou. The "Greek contribution" to the Athens Congress was rounded off with a new edition of the most important interwar publication on modern Greek architecture. Spread across the country, these schools, where several generations of pupils were educated, are the clearest and most revealing testimony to the desire for modernisation and the intensity with which the messages of modern European architectural culture were incorporated into Greece in the s.
The book is published by Kapon Editions, thanks to an exclusive grant by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. A three-day intensive, multi-faceted festival programme with scholarly, editorial and artistic aspects was expected, a contribution to the outstanding importance of the event.

These different historiographical perspectives were centred on subjects like the protagonists, the processes, architectural works, urbanism, and representation; from anthropology to cinema, from pedagogy to research, from architectural language to theory, from housing to tourism, from image to criticism. Aiming to a better understand of Architecture in Portugal, twelve lectures are organized to study relevant projects in the municipality of Lisbon from the mentioned period.
Entrance is free, conditioned to the seats in the auditorium. Founded in , it is an annual design and research studio that travels to multiple cities in Asia. This year, the programme will travel to the cities of Singapore and Shanghai. In particular, students would study the effects of industry, manufacturing and other forms of production, and their adjacency to requisite urban functions such as housing and commerce.
These forms of production have new appearances as late-industrial or post-industrial forms, because of their strategic importance and complex organisation within the highly urbanised contexts. Through this course, students will focus on different urban environments and building typologies, especially in the way they resist and subvert, or become mutated or subsumed by the highly transformative urban conditions today. The studio and seminar assignments would be based on the examination and re-invention of a number of these building types, seeking out strategies of cooperation, exploitation, adaptation, and even conflict.
Students will have the benefit of visiting unique areas of the city under-going massive change, exploring and discussing broad-ranging issues through historical and theoretical concepts in identity, post-colonialism, nationalism and globalisation. Learning activities include lectures, seminars, studio crits, field work, visits to experimental practices and sites, and forums for active discussions. Les Grands ensembles : Patrimoines en devenir. Beaulieu, counting among the series of six, which in launches major French ensembles, is now labelled Heritage twentieth century.
Its neighbour Montchovet knew almost all the political devices of the city, including the demolition in of the Chinese Wall, an unavoidable building in the Saint-Etienne landscape. A return on the history of urban policies and the settlement of these ensembles, coupled with a reading of the renovation program through the original question of heritage, in the property and cultural sense, makes it possible to explain the trend which is taking shape for the future: that of a return to the sources of social housing for the greatest number, via the valorisation of sets which are emblematic of it.
The initiative revolves around a rich programme of exhibitions, workshops, conferences and meetings with the protagonists of the international architecture culture. This year, the event will take place from 9 th May to 6 th June. They would like all to come and read in the Pavilion, to enjoy its architecture, to browse the publications of the interventions that have been made over time in the Pavilion and to know the great selection of architecture books and the novelties that we have in the bookstore.
During this day the public can see the Pavilion in a different way since, apart from being open the garden gate so that you can cross the space in the way it was originally thought. Text provided by Mies van der Rohe Pavilion Foundation. This monograph edition of the journal HPA attempts to map the international spread processes of architectural culture in the mass media after the Second World War, taking the period as a traditional time framework.
How did it happen in a period of radical cultural reconstruction and fundamental disciplinary redefinition? And vice versa: how was the same project interpreted from the point of view of foreign establishment? The aim is to analyse the reality based on some prominent manifestations of architectural culture and to study the existing interrelations, not only between politics and culture, but also between the different disciplines at play, such as: architecture, urbanism, art and culture.
In order to deepen knowledge on the institutions that promoted these initiatives, who directed and worked on them, the type of selections they made and the strategies pursued -aspects that define some specific political and intellectual trends. Description provided by the organization. General theme: "Cities: the Latin America urban processes in its history" "Faced with the multiple meanings with which it is possible to define it, the city is inserted into history as one of the greatest creations of human civilization, because in its population, space and territory converge and flow at the same time the processes of historical change that the articulate as a material, social, economic, environmental and cultural artefacts with diverse historical densities in the world and in time.
Through its urban language Ibero-American cities have woven spaces, environments, territories, societies and cultures that have united and unite historical experiences that recover their past and others that project their future with uncertainty. On the other hand, when conceiving the city as a whole and not as another object of reality, Henri Lefebvre bequeathed us the recognition that it is not susceptible to being studied by a particular science or method, for which reason it is necessary to develop a methodological relativism and an epistemological pluralism to assume this assignment.
Thus, the city and its historical change processes constitute a problematic to unravel whose keys are manifested in the historical contradictions between the urban space and its contents, which may well be symbolic, political, economic, social and cultural. Open calls: The organizers of table 14, whose theme is "From the office to the large general hospital, the urban scales of architecture for health in Latin America," will accept submissions of papers until April 22nd, For more information about this discussion table, please download the pdf below. The Houston Mod, a non-profit membership organisation dedicated to promoting knowledge and appreciation of modern architecture and design in Houston and Texas, is promoting the 10 th annual MODern Month in April to celebrate modernism in Texas throughout the month of April.

The Prize is considered the oldest prestigious distinction in the housing sector and is divided into two segments: Urban Rehabilitation and Scientific Production Work. The Urban Rehabilitation segment is structured in four categories: Residential building rehabilitation; Equipment building rehabilitation; Urban rehabilitation; Public space rehabilitation or requalification. Applications will be open until May 31st and must be instructed through the forms available in the Housing Portal website.
Only 15 hours after were the firefighters able to completely extinguish the flames.
The central spire entirely caught on fire and ended up collapsing inside the nave. Relics at the top of the spire are believed lost as the spire was destroyed. The construction of the church began in and lasted for over a century. Many were there alterations and additions that turned this building into the gothic architectural icon it is known as today. It is also a monument of literary heritage, a place that is unique in our collective imagination. Heritage of the French but also of humanity as a whole.
This drama reminds us of the power of heritage that connects us to one another. We are receiving messages of support from all over the world. Docomomo International trusts that, although it might take a while, a sucessful rehabilitation will be carried out and the Notre Dame Cathedral will be once again a space of religious and cultural worship. In June , an open class from a renowned specialist in Corbusian studies, Xavier Monteys, took place in this installation which was included in the cycle of classes entitled "Le Corbusier and the Drawing". The 9th AZ Award edition received applications from around 50 different countries.
The public announcement of the winners is scheduled for June 21 st in Toronto, Canada. Eileen Gray - Her Work and Her World The renowned and highly influential architect, furniture-maker, interior designer and photographer Eileen Gray was born in Ireland and remained throughout her life an Irishwoman at heart. An elusive figure, her interior world has never before been observed as closely as in this ground-breaking study of her work, philosophy and inner circle of fellow artists.
Gray was a self-taught polymath and her work was multi-functional, user-friendly, ready for mass production yet succinctly unique, and her designs show great technical virtuosity. Her expertise in lacquer work and carpet design, often overlooked, is given due attention in this book, as is her fascinating relationship with the architect Le Corbusier and many other compelling and complex relationships. The primary source material for this book is drawn from the Eileen Gray collection at the National Museum of Ireland and its wealth of documentation, correspondence, personal archives, photographs and oral history.

At the interdisciplinary colloquium, processes of value appropriation, value internalisation and the individual formation of values will be discussed using specific examples from construction and planning history. These processes can range from antiquity to the present time and should be discussed using an interdisciplinary approach. The colloquium would like to specifically engage disciplines such as archeology, architecture, construction history, architectural conservation, engineering, art history, sociology of space, urban and regional planning.
The colloquium organizers welcome abstracts in German or English for presentations max. Please submit your abstract max. In addition to describing how the buildings first came about, the book also describes the changes in use that the libraries have undergone over the decades. The foreword to the book has been written by distinguished British architecture historian Professor Kenneth Frampton.

Our entire culture rests on the nature of our dwellings, stated Alvar Aalto in a lecture he delivered in Munich in During the course of a career spanning over 50 years, Aalto designed a total of nearly single-family houses, apartments blocks, student dormitories and summer homes. Many of them are architectural gems, in which his thoughts about dwelling and architecture converge.

The iNTA is a networking platform for international researchers and practitioners to collaborate and learn from each other about problems and solutions pertaining to architecture and urban design in the tropical and sub-tropical regions. The network, which addresses issues arising from the interaction between climatic and natural conditions of the tropical and sub- tropical regions and various local specifics of culture, urban fabric and technology in the formation of architectural and urban environments, was founded in Singapore in by academics at the National University of Singapore.
Contributions to the following conference streams are sought: 1. Tropical Architecture: Contemporary Tropical-isms 3. One hundred years after its founding in Weimar, this conference traces the transnational impact of the Bauhaus on the history of the future of design. As a workshop of modernity and a laboratory of the future, the Bauhaus changed everyday life through design: from single objects to buildings and cities. The Bauhaus set into motion a democratisation of design that is reflected today in all aspects of the objects we use and the spaces we live in. From Bauhaus to IKEA examines historical and contemporary design theories, philosophies and practices of making into the future.
The conference welcomes papers from a wide range of historic and contemporary perspectives, including design theory, architecture, interior architecture, product design, design school pedagogy, art history, visual and textile studies. The peer review will include two stages: abstract submission and, subsequently, full paper submission subject to a double peer review process.
Architects from all over the world are invited to design one of the most important future spaces in the capital city of Lithuania and to submit their proposals to the Vilnius City Municipality. The architectural competition is organised by the Lithuanian Union of Architects on behalf on the Vilnius City Municipal Administration in cooperation with the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Lithuania.
Paulo, in Lisbon , both in association with EJV. He has written a wide variety of articles, critique and presentations regarding architecture in the specialized press since , and has been invited to a great number of conferences, both in Portugal and abroad. Possessing a profound knowledge of architectural history and theory, and embracing the avant-garde, he never merely replicated the status quo but challenged it. Docomomo International wishes the very best success for the architect. More details: website. Pleas for the Preservation of Subway and Traffic Facilities of the Post-war Period With the student competition, the organisers wish to continue the ICOMOS student competitions of "from 60 to 90" and "60plus XXL" and this time focus on the subway and traffic facilities of the post-war period.
Analytical contributions on the significance, function and redevelopment or modernisation and transformation of listed traffic facilities are possible as well as conceptual contributions with proposals for conservation, restoration or conservation renewal and re-use. Historic Sports Facilities between Conservation and Conversion", the questions of sustainability and responsibility for the preservation of the international heritage of the Olympic sports facilities will be addressed in the Olympic city of Munich, in the year before the Olympic Games of in Japan and as a follow-up of the European Year of Cultural Heritage and its motto "Sharing Heritage - Sharing Values".
The theme will be the interventions on the religious heritage after the Secon Vatican Council when the process of renewal of the Catholic churches began. In these actions there are always dichotomies that provoke tensions often irresolvable: between the provisional and the definitive, between the new and the old, between what must be conserved and what the community demands, between tourist consumption and daily events, between the urban and the rural, etc.
Thus, it is essential to know the criteria that support interventions, whether legal both ecclesiastical or civil , architectural, artistic, liturgical or pastoral. The specific intention is to compare the different approaches of modern city planning and their impact on the character of spatial forms in developing and developed countries, which in the past shared similar systems of authoritarian regimes.
Are there any shared role-models in designing urban structures? All contributions are evaluated by independent reviewers. The proposed construction site is located within the Rachid Karami International Fair, designed by renowned Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer in the s. The Knowledge and Innovation Centre will be a business and technology park that accommodates and fosters the growth of entrepreneurs, start-ups and SMEs in the city of Tripoli and the surrounding region.
Its goal is to become an inclusive collaborative platform attracting companies from a wide variety of sectors. The residencies have been prepared during together with diverse European universities. The aim of the project is to re-activate lesser known European cultural heritage by inviting students, artists, and the general public to raise critical questions on how to preserve, adapt, and re-use modern heritage houses for the future.
Submit your proposal for a house , and contribute to a digital database of 20th century houses that will be transformed into a concrete installation in Brussels, Barcelona and Naples during the duration of the project. Since he has taught architecture at the ETH in Zurich where he previously studied under his mentor Rudolf Olgiati. His fascination with classical order and the search for the right proportions in architecture led him to develop his own system of relations applicable to all scales. This takes the form of an art container in raw concrete designed especially for sculptures.
In he designed an office building for Novartis in Basle, thereby demonstrating his rigorous architecture on a larger scale. The medal, designed by Aalto, was established in to honour creative architectural work. A condition for the award is respect for the timeless principle of architecture as a societal tool and a reinforcer of social relationships. The exhibition presents the medallists from to today.
They represent a comprehensive cross-section of the developments and stylistic directions in architecture over the past half century. Over the past 50 years, the Alvar Aalto Medal has been awarded to accomplished architects from 10 countries and being handed out 13 times. From that first congress, it was proposed to organize a new one every two years. This initiative aims to provide students, professionals and academics dedicated to topics related to architecture and urbanism, a space of reflection, on an international basis, about collective housing and its relationship to contemporary and historical city.
As in previous editions, this IV Congress will also feature complementary activities such as workshops, tours and a poster exhibition of papers related to collective housing. The themes up for submission are: 1. Historical Reviews 2. Regulations and management 5. Projects and Typologies The deadline for submissions was 17th April As in previous years, the co-organizer of the conference will be the Gdansk University of Technology, Faculty of Architecture.
The theme of the forthcoming conference will focus on issues related to the form of modernist architecture and the problems of preserving its integrity and authenticity. The contents of the conference will be supervised by the Scientific Committee constituted by prominent experts from Poland and abroad. Abstracts can be submitted until 31st March Introductory information, including the schedule of the preparations, can be found in the registration form, in the PDF below.
The result? More resilient communities, enhanced social inclusion, and new skills in the conservation field and beyond. Could your treasured place be on the next Watch? Nominate a site or help us spread the word today. The exhibition looks at alternative urban development scenarios that consider the synergetic relationships between humankind and the natural environment, as rising sea levels and melting icecaps brings the issue of living with water to the fore, extending across both local conditions and global shifts alike.
It aims to encourage other property owners to undertake conservation projects within their communities, either independently or by seeking public-private partnerships. Since , the Awards have recognised winners from 21 countries for their thorough understanding of the places, sound technical achievements, and significant social and policy impacts at the local, national and regional levels.
Interested young professionals and members of the public are encouraged to communicate with UNESCO Bangkok for further information via the contact details below. Each entry must be submitted by 30th April Our room was situated directly above that street. Moreover, since there is no air conditioning, and no fans were provided, I asked , one has to keep the windows open in the summer or one will overheat very quickly. I suspect this could be entirely different in the winter, since you will ostensibly have the window closed without the concern of overheating. Security was great and everyone super friendly.
And the location was truly fabulous. We took an inexpensive uber taxi from the airport to our inn after turning in that vexing rental car. Normal Uber service is not available in Dublin. The inn staff also offered to telephone a taxi on our behalf, and I thought that was quite nice. It is the home of the famed Temple Bar and the area itself is teaming with tourists and locals alike.
There is plenty of cobblestone streets in the area to satisfy your inner romantic wayfarer. It is a colorful and eclectic area packed with good food, live music, and interestingly at least in the summer beautiful flowers which adorn the roof edges of the buildings. Day 2: We fell asleep finally anxious for our first full day in Dublin. After a lovely breakfast in a fully sun lit breakfast room, Katie and I set out for our first spot on our self-made itinerary.
The Book of Kells is located inside the insanely beautiful library at Trinity College. We purchased our tour for the Book of Kells online when planning our trip months ahead, which I highly recommend doing. But the campus tour must be purchased just across the courtyard from the Book of Kells Library on the day you would like to tour. This was easy even in July. We did so as soon as we finished our tour of the library. And the campus tour is a nice accompaniment to the library tour. The Book of Kells is a famed exhibit, a copy of the four gospels in Latin which was written around AD.
It is also accompanied by two pocket gospels. After refueling ourselves with nourishment and coffee always , we decided to take on Dublin Christ Church Cathedral and the adjoining Dublinia Museum in the afternoon. It is home to a 12th century crypt one of the oldest and largest in Britain and Ireland. The cathedral was founded in by a Norse King of Dublin by name of Sitriuc.
The museum focuses on the Viking and Medieval history of the city. It is located in a part of the Christ Church Cathedral known as the Synod hall. The two are connected by a really cool Medieval corridor. In Dublin alone, from July to Christmas of that same year, people died from this plague. It closed its doors for good in Our tour of this place was off the chart. The youngest prisoner held here was a boy of 5 years old, held for 48 hours for begging.
Another of my favorite, but very sad stories: There are hundreds James Connolly and Patrick Pearse were the leaders of the Easter Uprising of April 24, , the Monday after Easter, The Irish patriots held out for about a week. Seven leaders of the rising proclaimed an Irish Republic. All seven of the signers were executed along with eight others, including Connolly and Pearse. Another one was Joseph Plunkett who married his wife, Grace Gifford Plunkett, in the prison and had 10 minutes with her under guard prior to his execution.
They simply sat silently together the entire 10 minutes. Though the rebels surrendered and 14 according to our tour guide of their leaders were executed, the Rising had a huge effect. It became the first stage in a war of independence from Great Britain that resulted in the creation of the Irish Free State in and, ultimately, the formal declaration of an Irish Republic in Tip: We definitely needed a lot more time here.
I would most assuredly devote a whole day to this area of Dublin which is just a short bus ride from Dublin Center. We were ready for St. This cathedral dates from to the present. It has taken many hits over the years by various kings, but sustained its elegance nevertheless. On the day we were there a choir from Minneapolis was performing and their voices and the acoustics in the cathedral were splendid.
His is a grand exhibit in this cathedral. Dublin Castle. This is really Dublin Palace. But its origins are a castle fortification from the Viking Ages, with a castle being built here by King John of England in Most of the medieval castle is gone except for the one remaining tower and foundation ruins.
In the 18th century, a palace was built in its place. The Castle was originally developed as a medieval fortress under the orders of King John of England. It had four corner towers linked by high curtain walls and was built around a large central enclosure. Constructed on elevated ground once occupied by an earlier Viking settlement, the old Castle stood approximately on the site of the present Upper Castle Yard. It remained largely intact until April , when a major fire caused severe damage to much of the building.
Despite the extent of the fire, parts of the medieval and Viking structures survived and can still be explored by visitors today. Do the guided tour because otherwise you will not see the Viking settlement ruins under the castle. And furthermore, literally we stood over the Poddle River that indeed flows into the River Liffey which used to run all above ground, but diverted years ago for fortification purposes.
Day 4: St Michans Church. Their wooden caskets, however, have cracked open. Inside are the preserved bodies, complete with skin and strands of hair and fingernails. This place was fascinating!! Just show up when they open. You do not need to buy your tickets ahead of time. This is one of those hidden gems. After a perfectly creepy, but fascinating time in the St.
King George IV. Empowering Students: Human Rights in the High Achieving Classrooms Contribute to the empowerment of students by exploring the connections between inalienable human rights, contemporary issues, and the curricular standards found in high achieving or AP style classrooms. In short, this case proves how memory operated as a battle weapon and how purity of blood was used as an instrument molded to self-interest in this framework. In the West Indies, in the face of uncontrollable mixture, purity served as a device of social exclusion, but one which was legimitized by phenotypic factors, mainly skin color. These concerts were performed again in the Benaki Museum in the evening, in conclusion of each congress day.
So being that Katie and I are both writers, when we started planning our trip to Dublin, it was with pleasant surprise we discovered what a historical literary giant this place is. What an added bonus. Swift and Sheridan, Shaw, Yeats, Joyce and Beckett, and Bram Stoker are among those presented through their books, letters, portraits and personal items.
What a big check mark on our bucket list. Afterwards, we took a trip to the National Library of Ireland and walked through a fascinating and insightful exhibit all about the life of William Butler Yeats. This place is a fantastic collection of ancient text and scripture and books; maps; chronicles; devotionals; and the list goes on.
Make sure you have at least 2 or 3 hours to spend here. It is packed with some of the oldest known copies of parts of the bible, including letters of Paul the Apostle from the New Testament, not to mention ancient copies of the Torah, from the Old Testament. It is free to the public. Beatty was actually an American. He received his mining engineering degree from Columbia University and worked his way up to being a mining magnate, consultant and expert in CO.
His wife died after only 11 years of marriage, and he moved to London where he started his own consulting business. He remarried and was an avid collector. He began to amass a huge amount of ancient literature, including some of the oldest known copies in existence of the Pauline epistles of the bible. So take your time going though this. Also he collected ancient texts, scrolls and literature from other religions besides Christianity and as well books from all genres spanning literally s of years.
Around he moved to Dublin. His priceless collection lives on as a celebration of the spirit and generosity of Chester Beatty. I was very excited we were allowed to take pics, minus the flash. You might be wondering with all of these touristy sites and historical venues we visit, do we ever shop or meander? But I guess it is true that shopping is never high on our itinerary. But as for the meandering, one of my favorite things to do when I travel is write letters and post cards to friends and family at breakfast.
I love the whole sharing aspect of travel. I have no intention of keeping it all to myself. And all in all, we try to take time to drink coffee slowly, window shop and cafe sit while people watching, along with all the crazy incredible sites we want to see. And of course it is never enough time, but then again, that always keeps you coming back for more. So off Katie and I went to this new place we had only seen in pictures up to this point. And the new place did not disappoint. We landed in Dublin and immediately rented a car. Because I have always wanted to drive a stick shift from the right seat while shifting with my left hand and driving on the left side of the road.
Just kidding! No, really, we did it because for the first 8 days of our trip, we were heading south through the Wicklow mountains, into Kilkenny, onto Kinsale, and then along the southern coast to the Ring of Kerry and the Dingle Peninsula before heading North to the Cliffs of Mohr, and finally ending up back in Dublin where we happily ecstatically turned in our rental car and spent the last 4 days in this beautiful city as pedestrians. That is a different Travel Blog entry. Part 2 you might say.
Renting a car is a must if you are planning an extended trip and drive around the country side. Sure there are great bus tours you can do, and if you are staying in Dublin or Shanon or Belfast and just taking day trips, then I think this is an excellent option. But if you are leaving the city for a significant amount of time, then driving allows you an excellent vantage point for taking in this breathtaking scenery, for making impromptu stops, and to just be leisurely along the way.
You can too. I would highly recommend, if it is your very first time to drive on the wrong side of the road, oops I meant the left side of the road , that you do it with someone in the passenger seat. Katie Ann was indisputably the best navigator ever. I rented online with Hertz from my kitchen table in Houston and paid about US dollars for nearly 8 days of rental. But all the usual suspects in car rental agencies operate in Dublin. Glendalough, or the Glen of two Lakes, is one of the most important sites of monastic ruins in Ireland.
Kevin, an Irish Saint, built a monastery here in this glen in the 6th century. Once you leave Dublin Airport in your nifty little compact rental car, the mountains and Gleandalough are just a short drive away. Be on guard. Glendalough is very touristy. It was definitely one of the most crowded places we visited. And guess what?
You have to love that. It is few and far between, and we visited in one of the hottest weeks of a summer on record in Ireland. We visited Kilkenny castle while here. After breakfast at a nearby cafe, we set out for Kinsale with stops at Jerpoint Abbey and Cahir Castle, just because we could.
The benefits of traveling in a rental car. Kilkenny Castle is a castle first built in to control a fording-point of the River Nore and the junction of several routeways. Jerpoint Abbey is a ruined Cistercian abbey, founded in the second half of the 12th century. The abbey is pleasantly quiet and free of crowds, but yet so mystic and enchanting. The two best things about the Blue Horizon were the views and the breakfast.
And alas, one old but working oscillating fan. The commanding officer Walther Schwieger gave the orders and a single torpedo was on its way. It struck on the starboard bow, alongside one of the cargo holds and moments later a second explosion erupted from within the hull. Of the on board only survived, and four of whom died over the following months.
The survivors were mostly taken from the water by merchant mariners fisherman from the harbor of Queenstown Now it is Cobh-pronounced Cove The link between this harbor with the Titanic is also an irony. The Titanic also made its last port of call here at Queenstown Cobh in April just days before it hit an iceberg and sank in the Atlantic en route to NYC. It was such an honor for me and Katie Ann to be able to visit the very places that mark this tragedy in history.
And it is good for us to honor the lost. We live in such times of peace, comparatively. In some ways, they died for our freedom in that war, in the same way that the soldiers did on the actual battlefield. Also the town of Kinsale is adorable and colorful and the marina is lovely. Parking was super easy and cheap on the outskirt of the center of town. Seriously, beautiful views and so peaceful. And the history is incredible. William Robinson, architect of the Royal Hospital in Kilmainham Dublin, and Superintendent of Fortifications, is credited with designing the fort.
As one of the largest military forts in the country, Charles Fort has been associated with some of the most momentous events in Irish history.
Charles Fort remained garrisoned by the British army until So off we went after two beautiful days visiting Garrettstown and Kinsale and Cobh, we headed along the coast and a little North to the very touristy Blarney Castle in Cork. And we were smack dab at the end of June, a busy travel season. Blarney is an odd castle in that, touring the castle and kissing the famous Blarney stone is all the same queue. The line goes pretty fast. We were there in June. I can imagine it is even faster in the off season. But you know what the true show stopper is at Blarney castle that makes the visit worth it, are the gardens.
They are some of the most spectacular castle gardens I have ever seen. Truly engaging and beautiful. Also the Blarney House, a Scottish baronial-style mansion, was built on the grounds in , is also open to the public. We just missed its opening time. So check the hours of operation for that ahead of time. Plan on a full morning or afternoon at Blarney. But if you bring a picnic basket, maybe longer. Think Ring of Kerry. Here we opted for a good old fashioned Holiday Inn, but guess what?
No AC as we had hoped for. But they did produce at my request, the tiniest oscillating fan I had ever seen in my life. Truly amazing that it had not been put in the Guinness Book of World Records. Our first stop: Muckross House and Gardens. We did the guided tour, this being the only way to see the mansion.
Built in They entertained Queen Victoria here but ended up bankrupt and and sold the estate. The new owner was Arthur Guinness of the Guinness brewery family and he rented it out to wealthy groups as a hunting lodge. He and his wife gave it to their only child Maud as a wedding present since she married an Irishman. They had two children. Maud died an early death in and her parents subsequently presented the house and its acres estate to the Irish nation. The grounds are beautiful and the Lake you see is one of the three Lakes of Killarney, Muckross Lake.
Something I would plan for here if I had to do it all over again, is to swim in the lakes. We did not plan for this and were neither parked or dressed accordingly. So after checking in to our very American Holiday Inn in Killarney, we ate a slow dinner and caught our breaths. We drove the whole approsimately miles around the Ring of Kerry, making many stops and taking in incredibly wonderful, simply divine views. We had to cross over on the 10 minute car ferry from Cahersiveen to Skelllig Island where we took a somewhat treacherous drive to the Lighthouse in Valentia Island.
Our last and final sleepover along the southern coast of Ireland, the Dingle Peninsula. Broigin BnB was lovely and our host, Anne, did a custom breakfast with piping hot coffee every morning at exactly the time we requested. Anne was wonderful. Very hospitable. She was also great with advice for your itinerary and helpful with directions.
There are many places to stop along the way. One of them was an abandoned farm from the potato famine that occurred in Ireland in —49 when the potato crop failed in successive years. There were also monastic beehive huts speckled around Dingle which have their origins dating from thousands of years ago; beaches beaches beaches and for us, everywhere sunshine! Bring on the Slea Head Drive. In the afternoon, we decided to do the other loop in Dingle, which we now look back on as so memorable both in a wonderful and frightening way.
Wonderful, because the views and the drive were fantastic. Frightening, becasue one time driving through the Conor Pass is enough to last me a lifetime. The views from the road are breathtaking, as the glaciated landscape of mountains and corrie lakes comes into view. Along the way back to Dingle, we found the perfect beach for swimming, relaxing and enjoying the Atlantic on a warm day.
Fermoyle Strand Beach:. The next morning after our breakfast at Broigin, we arrived at he Dingle harbor for our Blasket Island tour. In the s and s the Blasket Island resident writers produced books which are deemed classics in the world of literature. They wrote of island people living on the very edge of Europe, and brought to life the topography, and life and times of their Island.
They wrote all of their stories in the Irish language. Sadly, the Blasket Island community declined as a result of the persistent emigration of its young people, until eventually the Island was abandoned in when only 22 inhabitants remained Those who immigrated largely settled in Springfield MA and a few in Butte MO. We also saw seals, lots of different birds including Puffins. And one lone dolphin who is the resident dolphin in the Dingle Harbor.
We lingered there only a little while before heading to Dublin and turning in that rental car. As sad as I might have been to depart the Irish countryside, I was never so happy in my life to turn in a rental car! This wrapped up a glorious 8 days of travel, not soon to be forgotten by two little Texans. All in all what a jaw dropping place to visit. Phobos is the original greek word for the fear found in 1 John But perfect love drives out fear phobos , because fear phobos has to do with punishment.
This greek word is defined as terror or alarm, and the part I find the most eye-opening: withdrawing or fleeing for feeling inadequate, or to avoid because of dead fright. Both deilia and phobos are the types of fear that control us, keep us sidetracked; off-center, out of balance; preoccupied; and therefore…. Do you see any connections? We all fall victim to phobos. I just finished a 15 day overseas trip with my youngest daughter Katie.
She chose England. My middle daughter chose France and Katie chose Ireland. What does this all have to do with phobos you ask? I pour over the details in pre-planning stages, then when we are in the eye of the storm, I reexamine, every. That is when I realize that the phobos of 1 John is taking hold of me, and I need to tell it to stand down. Because the almighty God is the house. I know this specifically because 1 Corinthians is explicit about where the Almighty dwells…. I am the house. Yeah we need to name our fear. Life is full of bumps in the road, to put it mildly right? Death, murder, loss, bad diagnosis, betrayal, disappointment, depression, and that is just the tip of the iceberg.
If you were to take a poll of people and asked them which emotion consumes them the most. Yes, it wins over all of them: jealousy, anger, hurt, sadness, joy, disgust…because I believe phobos is at the root of all of these emotions. I belive that phobos is the common denominator among all of our negative emotions. Fear phobos of inferiority or insignificance can cause jealousy.
Fear phobos of commitment can cause loneliness. Fear phobos of loss can cause depression. Fear phobos of failure can cause timidity. Fear phobos of the darkness can cause hopelessness. So what can we do about phobos? Capture every single thought that is riddled with phobos and trample it into a million fragments under your feet into nothingness. Every thought or pretention that sets itself up as truth-but yet it is not-let it disintegrate into the same darkness from which it came. Phobos puts us into retreat.
My God is in the house. Oklahoma City Memorial. Apples and Oranges. We live in a world that more often than not lends itself toward constant comparisons. We compare everything under the sun.
