The Dublin Architecture Guide is a companion guide to the modern architecture of Dublin. With a total of 255 projects featured, this book will suit anyone interested in often under-appreciated or overlooked modern buildings. The book is written by three Dublin-based Architects: Paul Kelly, Cormac Murray and Brendan Spierin. The authors are passionate about celebrating and raising awareness about the city's architecture. The buildings range across 84 years from 1937 to 2021.
Each building has an equal-length description and original photography. Some are accompanied by an architect's sketch. Several of those featured have won both domestic and international awards and have been published widely before. However, we rarely see all of them together, grouped with younger and older neighbours, with unedited photographs showing them in their day-to-day condition - long after they are first occupied. From Trinity College to the Docklands, Ballymun to Ballyfermot, Swords to Dun Laoghaire, this book celebrates all the brick, timber, concrete, stone, and glass that have helped define the new Dublin of the modern era.
