Dublin Architecture, 150+ Buildings from 1990-2010 Gandon Editions
Gandon Editions launched their new publication at the Atrium in Trinity last night the 23rd of October. It was presented by artist Robert Ballagh.
The 320-page full-colour Gandon Editions hardback book by the architect Seán Antóin Ó Muirí features over 150 of the best buildings and public spaces completed in Dublin since 1990. The selected projects are contextualised by authoritative essays on contemporary and 20th-century Dublin architecture by Dermot Boyd, Ciarán Cuffe and Shane O’ Toole. This sumptuously illustrated book carries 1,397 illustrations — 691 photos and 706 drawings. This book will be an essential architectural guide for cultural tourists and researchers. The book will appeal to anyone interested in architecture and indeed anyone interested in contemporary Dublin.
Many of the Architects that I have worked with over the years are featured in the book. It is nice to see all of the projects compiled together with so many beautiful photographs. The book is a great guide to the city’s recent architectural additions.
Shane O’Toole writes a fine essay on free state architecture , this alone, is well worth the purchase price of the book .
