Event description

Description

UCD School of Architecture, Planning and Environmental Policy is delighted to present Sheila O Donnell and John Tuomey as part of this lecture series at University College Dublin.

O Donnell + Tuomey are the second of three architects that will speak as part of an inaugural UCD Master of Architecture Lecture and Masterclass Series, in 2019.

John Tuomey and Sheila O' Donnell are Professors of Architecture at University College Dublin. They have taught architecture with an unprecedented commitment for decades and have had a significant influence on the teaching and studio culture of the School of Architecture. We are delighted that they will participate in this Lecture Series in 2019.

_____

The lecture series is free and all are welcome to attend the lectures whether directly involved in architecture, education or not.

A key aim of the lecture series is to share the work and practice of architects and students in education with a broader audience. UCD Architecture is therefore pleased to offer a series of public talks to which all are welcome to discuss, consider and debate ideas in architecture, ideas which inevitably impact and enrich our individual and collective daily lives.

The UCD Master of Architecture Masterclass Series is supported by Dublin Port Company as part of the Dublin Port Perspectives Program. The lecture series is presented in association with the Architectural Association of Ireland.

ABOUT O Donnell + Tuomey, Dublin.


O’Donnell + Tuomey is a studio-based practice, with offices in Dublin, Cork and London. Committed to the craft and culture of architecture, they have been involved with urban design, cultural, social and educational projects at home and abroad. The practice has an international reputation for its engagement with complex urban situations and sensitive landscapes. They have completed schools and university buildings, theatres and cinemas, community centres and social housing, art galleries and libraries in Ireland, the UK and on the European mainland. Winners of more than 120 awards, recent buildings include the Glucksman Gallery Cork, Timberyard Housing Dublin, Irish Language Centre Derry, Sean O’Casey Community Centre Dublin, Lyric Theatre Belfast, Photographers’ Gallery London, LSE Student Centre and the Central European University Budapest. They have exhibited six times at the Venice Architecture Biennale, with installations which advance their research into the useful beauty and poetic purpose of architecture, exploring areas of overlap with other art forms.

Sheila O’Donnell graduated from University College Dublin in 1976, when she moved to London. In 1980 she was awarded an MA in Environmental Design from the Royal College of Art London.

ABOUT UCD Master of Architecture Lecture and Masterclass Series.

Working under the theme of Our State of In-between, the aim of the series is to make more public the ways and means by which architects are educated, by inviting architects and educators with an international track record in architectural education, practice and public engagement to share their teaching, learning and practice experience at a public lecture.

Students of architecture at UCD in their final year of education will then participate in a masterclass or discussion with the invited speakers.
