A timely overview of the pioneering work of the acclaimed Irish architectural practice who curated the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale.
Dublin-based Grafton Architects (founded by Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara in 1978) has built up an impressive body of work over its 40-year history, ranging from houses in Ireland to public buildings in Italy, France, the UK, and Peru.
In this long-overdue study, respected architectural writer and critic Robert McCarter presents 60 of Grafton's built and unbuilt projects and brings to light their principled and ethical approach, which is committed to making a profound difference to the lives of their buildings' users.
