Imagining Iveragh Charrette – OPEN

In November 2015, the IwB students, faculty, and staff travelled to County Kerry to conduct research for the Interstitial Zones project and run a five-day charrette called Imagining Iveragh.

Interstitial Zones is a major IwB initiative and partnership with the Kerry County Council, and other local stakeholders, in southwestern Ireland. The project focuses on creating sustainable economic development that will provide new job creation in the region. Imagining Iveragh was the first academic charrette held for this project.

Team 3 developed a proposal for OPEN, a space for new ways to see and experience Iveragh’s rich archeological landscape. The OPEN approach invites people to be part of discovering all the ‘not yet discovered’ archeology of the area. The video summarizes the team’s concept.
