Ruth O'Herlihy at "Books Downstairs" event at the IAF - Mon 19th Feb 2024

The Books Downstairs event on February 19th from 1-2pm at the Irish Architecture Foundation,15 Bachelor's Walk is the second in a series of conversations on books about architecture. Ruth O' Herlihy, Eibhlín Ní Chathasaigh and James Albert Martin will discuss their new books in conversation with architect and architectural historian Livia Hurley.

Both books deal with cities - Dublin and Chicago. They anticipate a conversation on how we come to know a city, and the reciprocal exchange that happens between people and the cities in which they live, and in which architects and others act.

Dublin Exchange, edited by Ruth O'Herlihy, René Boer and Gary Hamilton, responds to a specific moment in the city’s architecture history. In 2021, architect Niall McCullough (1958–2021) died. McCullough was one of Dublin city’s most significant writers on architecture and the city. For Dublin’s citizens, architects, and writers, his was a significant legacy of research, history, passion, intelligence, and argument for Dublin. The ‘exchange’ of the book's title makes reference to the work of McCullough but projects forward with words and photographs reflecting aspects of Dublin today.
