The Museum Building of Trinity College Dublin

The Museum Building of Trinity College Dublin

By Christine Casey



This volume addresses the most influential Victorian building in the city of Dublin and explores the new standard which it set in the use of Irish decorative stone, the employment of native craftsmen and the unprecedented eclecticism of its design. The geology, quarrying, building, carving and architectural design which created this spectacular structure are explored in a series of papers by established scholars and experts in the field. The book is richly illustrated in full colour to capture the sumptuous polychromy of the building and the profuse detail of its carved ornament.
