Ireland & Schotland

Architecture in Dublin & Glasgow

Ireland is in the spotlight. The economic boom and the huge building boom of the last few decades as a bubble burst. One of the poorest countries in Europe to one of the richest and then this.

But Ireland is today architecture. A young generation of designers has taken a different path with a critical eye and with a new refreshing look what we call written a story architecture.

Very fond of materiality, space and the social context, but also greatly influenced by the increasingly global architectural language, they do work that is sober weaves in place and time. We want to see that. Ireland has given us an excuse to drown in architecture and “Finnegans Wake”.

and Scotland.
Charles Rennie Mackintosh was the surprise during the preparation trip. The Long Glasgow doubts disappeared from the table. Supplemented by the work of contemporary local talent (Malcolm Fraser) and global ‘starchitecten (David Chipperfield and Zaha Hadid) probably result is a fascinating journey architecture.

Dublin and Glasgow. It sounds nice. They are not really direct tourist sites and we do not take the most obvious route …
