Given that 2D planning has failed Dublin and the national needs, and 3D urban block planning (and architectural design) has been deemed the way to go, a meeting has been called to discuss the defects of 3D planning and instead, three prominent speakers will address the better prospect of 4D planning!

The meeting will be held on Saturday, April 15 from 2.30-5.30pm. Among the speakers will be architect Rob Curley of Maremoto Architects, Tom Phillips (Tom Phillips & Assoc. Planning Consultants) and Colm Casey, Homebuyers Hero.

All three will speak broadly on the ‘silence’ of the 3D model on the future i.e. sustainability and the past.

Subtitled in Heritage Areas. the event is organised by Ranelagh Arts, the second in the Deirdre Kelly Colloquium series.

“A case can be made that 2D planning has failed us and that 3D urban block planning (and architectural design) is the way to go,” said one of the organisers.

“Architect Rob Curley will speak broadly to this theme. But the 3D model is silent about the future i.e. sustainability and the past, how our existing natural and built heritage also requires effective planning. 

“The needed 4th Dimension for good planning is time, an arrow facing backwards to our rich natural and built heritage and forward into the yet-to-be future. Tom Phillips will speak to the theme of protecting and celebrating our natural heritage along the Dodder River, and Colm Casey to the theme of renewing and repurposing our existing / heritage buildings. 

“All three speakers and the audience will add the future arrow of time in the panel and audience discussions.”
