Irish Architecture Now

Netlab Director Kazys Varnelis will be a responder to Irish Architecture Now, a panel featuring architects Merritt Bucholz and Karen McEvoy, Niall McCullough, and Shih-Fu Peng at the Rose Auditorium, The Cooper Union, September 26, 2011 at 6.30pm in New York City.

 

Architects from three leading contemporary Irish practices will present their work and discuss issues concerning Irish architecture as part of Irish Architecture Now—Ireland’s first ever architectural showcase in the U.S., which is part of Imagine Ireland, Culture Ireland’s year of Irish arts in America in 2011.
 
Merritt Bucholz and Karen McEvoy of Bucholz McEvoy Architects; Niall McCullough of McCullough Mulvin Architects; and Shih-Fu Peng of heneghan peng architects, are three of six firms touring the U.S. this autumn. The architects will discuss their practices and recent work in this symposium held at The Cooper Union and presented by the Architectural League. Raymund Ryan, Curator at the Heinz Architectural Center at the Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, PA curated the group and will provide the introduction.
