The Leader's of Design Council's Guide to Dublin

Every year Meg Touborg and Keith Granet, co-founders of the Leaders of Design Council, spend countless hours plotting a conference for the world’s top designers and architects. From Venice to Kyoto, New Orleans to Marrakech, the council uncovers inspiring architecture, art and gardens that aren’t normally open to the everyday traveler.

In April 2017 Touborg and Granet hosted more than 140 designers, architects, landscape designers, speakers and sponsors in the lush land of Ireland with the goal of uncovering Dublin’s heritage through architecture and exploring the robust modern art and design scene. Follow along as they guide us through the must-see destinations in the Fair City.
