This is a central portal for placemaking that harnesses the agency of communities across Ireland to amplify their potential in a way that can transform their physical, social, psychological well being. 

Reimagine is a nationwide placemaking programme by the Irish Architecture Foundation, working with communities across Ireland to co-create and co-design solutions to problems or opportunities they’ve identified in their locality.

Reimagine matches architects with local partners, enabling communities to play an active role in the development of their neighbourhoods, streetscapes, parks, villages and towns.

Find out more about our projects in the “Fieldwork” section, and stay up to daye on the “News” page. Go to “Resources” for toolkits, videos, essays, and information on our clinics, and to “About” to find out more about us.

            Reimagine Sessions #2: Bring Back Main Street

            24.08.2021
            This edition of Reimagine Sessions focuses on the centre of towns, areas that currently face major challenges as we undergo a shift in how we shop, work, travel and live. How can we reimagine a future for our town cores in the face of online retail and dereliction? Could remote working allow us to turn away from long commutes, and refocus our attention on our towns as places for social interaction and connection? What needs to happen for more people to return to Main Street living?

              Reimagine Cafe: Dereliction and Heritage at Risk

              09.08.2021
              For our August edition, we will be focusing on the critical issue of dereliction in our communities, with widespread impact visually, socially, economically as well as representing a huge loss of our built heritage. If you would like to join us to discuss this topic or to share an example from your own area, join us on ZOOM on Tuesday, August 31st. We would love to hear about successful strategies and case studies, of buildings brought back to life and vibrant, lived-in streets.
