The IAF is a vibrant and passionate organisation whose mission is to excite audiences about the cultural value of architecture. Through a programme of self-initiated events, it inspires people to become thoughtful and engaged stewards of the visual landscape. Open House Dublin is the IAF’s annual flagship event. Importantly, the IAF is a non-profit organisation.
Open House Dublin is part of the Open House Worldwide family with 47 other cities. It started in London in 1992 and is the simple and powerful idea where over one weekend buildings selected for their architectural quality and interest open their doors to the public. Open House Dublin is now in its 16th year. Initiated in 2006, OHD has grown from strength to strength and is now Ireland’s largest architectural event.
