Full Irish New Architecture in Ireland by Sarah A Lappin. 1st Edition, HardBack, Princeton Architectural Press, 2009.
In Full Irish author Sarah A. Lappin examines the nature of 21st Irish architectural identity as it develops its own progressive, contemporary idiom. Illustrated with color photographs and drawings,
From Georgian cities to modernist masterpieces, architecture in Ireland has a long history of excellence but from 1995 to 2009 Ireland experienced more social, economic, and cultural change than any previous period on the island, leaving a dramatic mark on the country's architecture.
A new commitment to design quality by developers and a series of government-sponsored competitions to design new civic buildings enabled Ireland to become for the first time a net importer of architectural talent.
These architects, from disparate cultures and design backgrounds, filled Ireland's landscape with modern architectural masterworks, from small private homes to large community centers.
Full Irish includes more than seventy projects from Ireland's leading firms as well as its up-and-coming designers: Boyd Cody, Alan Jones, de Blacam and Meagher, Bucholz McEvoy, de Paor Architects, FKL Architects, Dominic Stevens, Grafton Architects, Henchion+Reuter, Hackett Hall McKnight, Heneghan.Peng, McCullough Mulvin, Hassett + Ducatez, MacGabhann Architects, O'Donnell + Tuomey, and ODOS Architects.
