McCullough Mulvin exhibit at Irish Pavilion of Expo 2020 Dubai

McCullough Mulvin were selected as one of the nine Irish practices to be exhibited at the Irish Pavilion of Expo 2020 Dubai. A beautiful model of Thapar University Learning Laboratory, created by Plattenbaustudio, forms part of "The Architecture of Creative Learning" exhibition, curated by Dr. Brian Ward, lecturer in the Dublin School of Architecture, TU Dublin, and Gary A. Boyd, Professor of Architecture at Queen’s University, Belfast.

The Architecture of Creative Learning celebrates the innovation and creativity of Irish architects in the design of buildings for education globally. It presents nine architectural projects conceived and built by seven award-winning Irish practices within diverse international cultural and physical contexts.

Within this, it examines three themes present within these projects and Irish architecture broadly: conversation (an attention to the social potential of buildings); construction (an attention to the materiality and structure of buildings); and context (an attention to the influence of place on the design of buildings).

These themes form the basis of a series of conversations through models between the nine projects and a series of younger Irish architectural practices who have been commissioned to realise creative models that reinterpret and re-frame these buildings.
