25. NEW EUROPEAN BAUHAUS | Orla Murphy
In 2020 EU President Ursula von der Leyen launched the New European Bauhaus, an initiative intending to address climate by and through design. In this episode architect Orla Murphy outlines the values and workings of this initiative and talks about its potential impacts on architecture, on Ireland and on our shared futures on the planet. The conversation also engages with matters of civic and public space and the use of it by people in towns and cities. About Orla Murphy. Orla Murphy B. Arch M.
