House of Memory is a site of collective remembrance for all we lost during the COVID-19 pandemic

The House of Memory installation invites the public to share their personal experience of loss and grief during the pandemic.

Viewers are offered a platform to lament that loss within the structure by leaving a memento or a short written message in remembrance and as a symbol of hope for the future.

The project is partly funded by the Irish Hospice Foundation Seed Grant Scheme which, in partnership with the Creative Ireland programme, aims to inspire and support creative responses to the themes of dying, death and bereavement during COVID–19.

House of Memory is designed by David Kelly and commissioned by Architecture at the Edge.
