The Irish Architecture Foundation (IAF) presents the 7th annual Open House Dublin weekend - 5 to 7 October 2012 - featuring over 120 building visits, walking tours and events over one weekend, led by architects and enthusiasts, all for free.

Architecture Alive! is the theme of Open House Dublin 2012, and is an exploration of the vitality of Dublin through its architecture, and the people who experience it. Cities are fluid, they have the capacity to live, grow and develop and Architecture Alive! wants us to think about the impact buildings have on our lives and how they shape our environment and us.
