To recall the work of Herbert Simms, one of the most significant architects of public housing in Ireland, you are invited to attend a weekend conference on housing in Dublin today. Simms120 will bring together city residents, architects, artists and others to celebrate the life and legacy of Simms, city architect from 1932 to 1948.

Through his work with Dublin Corporation, Simms was responsible for some of the most elegant and highest quality housing that remains in Dublin city to the present day. From Cabra, Crumlin and in the heart of the city, Simms’ work and vision for Dublin are still present. These places not just about housing, but fostering community.
