About the Project

Reusing Dublin responds to the observation that we don’t use space in our city efficiently - and sometimes we don’t use it at all.

Reusing Dublin attempts to map underused spaces in order to identify opportunities for using the city more efficiently for the benefit of everyone.

Underused spaces include sites and buildings that are not used at all (vacant) or that are only partly in use. It also includes spaces that may have a use, like a roof or a grassed area, but that could accommodate additional uses.

Re-using Dublin is an experimental research project that is part of a wider EU FP7 project called TURAS (Transitioning towards Urban Resilience and Sustainability).
