Making Ireland Modern explores the relationship between architecture, infrastructure and technology in the building of a new nation.

Déantar iniúchadh in Making Ireland Modern (Éire Nua-Aimseartha a Chruthú) ar an ngaol idir ailtireacht, bonneagar agus teicneolaíocht nuair a bhíonn náisiún nua á thógáil.

Constructed as an open matrix of drawings, photographs, models and other artefacts, the exhibition presents ten infrastructural episodes: Negation; Electricity; Health; Transportation; Television; Aviation; Education; Telecommunications; Motorways and Data, spanning a period of one hundred years from 1916–2016.

Exploring a range of scales from the detail design of objects to entire landscapes and other territories, Making Ireland Modern describes architecture’s role in transforming the physical and cultural identity of the new state through its intercession in the everyday lives of its population.

Making Ireland Modern is a Touring Project as part of ART: 2016. It was originally presented as Infra Éireann – Making Ireland Modern at the 2014 International Architecture Exhibition - La Biennale di Venezia. 

The exhibition will take place from September 8th to October 1st at St Peter's Church in Cork.
