Zoom lecture by Laura Johnstone

Date: 02/12/2020

Time: 8:00 pm

Dr Laura Johnstone is an architect and architectural historian. She completed a PhD in the School of Architecture, UCD, on the impact of estate management on the design and formation of nineteenth-century suburbs on the Longford de Vesci estate in Dublin and Cork.

This talk will give an overview of her research and examine the impact of landlords on nineteenth-century suburban design in Monkstown and Glasthule.

The formation of speculator-led marine terraces at Newtownsmith, such as Martello and Windsor Terraces, will be compared with the estate-led setting out of Vesey Place, De Vesci Terrace and Longford Terrace.
