Iwan Baan

With projects from Lima to London, Grafton Architects is known for embedding each building within its own unique context. The studio’s forward-looking, influential designs have helped elevate modern architecture, cementing Ireland’s reputation as a design capital. In this presentation and discussion with Dirk Denison, founding principal of Dirk Denison Architects, Farrell and McNamara will spotlight several civic and institutional works including Milan’s Bocconi University, awarded the inaugural World Building of the Year Award at the World Architecture Festival; UTEC University in Lima, Peru, which received the RIBA International Prize in 2016; and ongoing projects for the City of Dublin, London School of Economics and the University of Arkansas. They will also recount their experience as curators of the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale. A conversation with Denison will further illuminate the architects’ process, work and lifelong commitment to mentorship.

This presentation is part of the Irish Consulate General’s “Design Month” programming throughout February, a celebration of the creative contributions of Irish women in the worlds of architecture, craft, art and music, timed to coincide with St. Brigid’s Day.
