Guided Touch Tour: The Architecture of the Glucksman

This Heritage Open Day the Glucksman team invites you to discover our award winning building through touch.

Designed by Irish architects O’Donnell + Tuomey, the Glucksman art museum in University College Cork is renowned for its unique features and innovative use of materials. The tour will provide insights into how the architectural design and engineering of the Glucksman facilitates functional and environmental concerns. The guided touch tour will be fully accessible and will involve discussion, touch, and extensive visual descriptions to enable blind or partially sighted visitors to participate. The tour will incorporate approaches that have been developed as part of the museums involvement in the EU project BEAM UP (Blind Engagement in Accessible Museum Project).
