Open Call: Dublin, Exchange. Reflections From a City in Flux

Story, Building has announced a new Open Call for writers and photographers to participate in Dublin, Exchange: a new book of reflections on Dublin today, tethered to the work and legacy of architect and writer Niall McCullough.

In 2021, architect Niall McCullough, one of Dublin city’s most significant writers on architecture and the city died. For Dublin’s citizens, architects, and writers, what remained was an astounding legacy of research, history, passion, intelligence, and argument for the city of Dublin. There is no comparable architect writing about the city in this way today. Such writing should continue with other voices now being supported to occupy that precious slipstream of a consistent and persistent focus on the city and its stories McCullough both loved and lamented.

Dublin, Exchange is a new, published collection of critical writing and photography. The ‘exchange’ of the title confirms that the book will be made with reference to the work of Niall McCullough, but the words and images it contains will reflect Dublin today.

Published by Story, Building and edited by Ruth O’Herlihy (McCullough Mulvin) and René Boer (Loom / Failed architecture), with Gary Hamilton, the Editors now seek to commission new writers and photographers to offer their reflections on this city in flux and to participate in this Dublin, Exchange.
