Harvard planners to focus on Dublin-Belfast corridor

February 16, 2011

By Staff Reporter

Harvard University’s world-renowned School of Design has partnered with several universities in Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic on an ambitious five-year urban planning program that will focus on the Dublin-to-Belfast metropolitan corridor.

The partnership, launched last year, will hold its second conference on Sept. 19-21 in Belfast, entitled Partnership, Prosperity and Place.

The conference will examine the work needed to create a “shared vision of where people will live and work,” and a final report will be published in 2005.

The four Irish Universities are: University of Ulster, Dublin Institute of Technology, University College Dublin and Queens University Belfast.

The conference will be opened by Belfast’s mayor, Alex Maskey, and other speakers will include academics, architects, infrastructure planners and politicians. Details, www.engj.ulst.ac.uk/ireland_harvard.
