Designing Urban Universities

Trinity College Dublin, the University of Dublin

Thursday 22 to Saturday 24 June 2023

There is a growing dissonance between the urban university as often perceived—its physical, architectural, and emblematic form, its legacy structures and spaces, its time-honoured functions and traditions—and the university as a knowledge factory within the city, subject to political, commercial, and environmental pressures. But this is not a new dissonance. Architectural and design histories can uncover how, across diverse cases, it has often shaped the urban university internally and in its relationship with the city.
