        Part 1 of the SIMMSposium is a talk by architectural historian Dr. Ellen Rowley. Ellen's talk sheds light on the difficult wartime context within which Simms produced such a prolific body of work. As part of Open House Dublin 2011, the Irish Architecture Foundation presented the SIMMSposium, a discussion of the life, work and legacy of Herbert G. Simms, Dublin City Housing Architect from 1932 - 1948. Simms left an indelible mark on Dublin city, creating over 17,000 housing units, and was a key figure in the clearing of Dublin's slums and tenements. He died tragically in 1948, and up until Open House Dublin 2011 not so much as a photograph of him had been unearthed. With thanks to speakers Ellen Rowley, Eddie Conroy and David O'Connor, chair Gerry Cahill and Dublin City Council.
