Docomomo is very excited to announce a visit to the Central Bank , guided by Miriam Fitzpatrick

VISIT TO THE CENTRAL BANK
17th SEPTEMBER 2012 6:30 PM
GUIDED BY MIRIAM FITZPATRICK

The visit will take place on Monday the 17th of September at 6:30 pm.

Attendance is limited to 10 people. This is a very rare opportunity to
see inside a “most emphatic c20 architectural presence” as described by
Christine Casey. Hugely innovative for its time, the structural system
meant that each floor was built at ground level and then lifted into
place with all its service equipment and fittings in place. Bands of
floor-to-ceiling glazing offer dramatic views of the city.

To attend, please register your interest by emailing
docomomoireland@gmail.com with your name by Tuesday August 17th.
10 names will be drawn from a hat from members that have expressed an
interest. The bank asked to clear the names and address of those
attending.

To attend you must be a member of Docomomo, Membership is available
