Film screening: “The House That Time Forgot”

Over the last 18 months, MESH Architects and Curved Street Films have been delighted to produce a documentary on No. 9/9A Aungier Street, "The House That Time Forgot," which was supported by the Department of Arts, Heritage, Regional, Rural & Gaeltacht Affairs under the Government Policy on Architecture 2009-2015 Implementation Programme. This has been a long and rewarding effort to capture the story and significance of Dublin's oldest-most-intact house, built in 1664, and it forms an important historic record at this pivotal point in the building's story. No. 9/9A was the recipient of an Irish Georgian Society Conservation Grant in 2014 for the repair of the significant 17th century staircase. 

You are invited to a FREE screening of the final documentary. This screening is being supported by the Department and will premiere this Sunday, 16th October at 12:00pm at the Irish Film Institute, located at 6 Eustace Street, Dublin 2, as part of the Irish Architecture Foundation's 2016 Open House weekend.
