Details: For nearly three decades, the best-selling and highly acclaimed NEW IRISH ARCHITECTURE series has been comprehensively documenting the best of contemporary Irish architecture through the buildings and projects featured in the annual AAI AWARDS for Excellence in Architectural Design. Entries are judged by a panel of five Irish and international assessors, offering a unique critical appraisal of contemporary Irish architecture. Each volume of New Irish Architecture carries copious drawings and photographs, architects' descriptions and the assessors' comments on every awarded and commended scheme. Volumes from no. 16 onwards also carry a keynote essay by the international critic on that year's jury. The series was established for the AAI by Gandon Editions in 1986. In 2001 (with volume 16), a new, much-expanded and more book-like octavo-format was adopted, allowing more coverage that before. Small numbers of some earlier volumes are still available (contact Gandon for details). The keynote essay in vol. 22 is "Dublin Duet - Landscape with Figures / The Celtic Tiger by Luis Fernández-Galiano. The Award-winning buildings featured are: Meeting Place, North Campus Development, Cork Institute of Technology by de Blacam & Meagher Architects and Boyd Barrett Murphy-O'Connor Architects; House at Aill Breac, Ballyconneely, Co Galway, by de Paor Architects; Solstice Arts Centre, Navan, Co Meath, by Grafton Architects; Source Arts Centre and Library, Thurles, Co Tipperary by McCullough Mulvin Architects; Riverside One, Sir John Rogerson's Quay, Dublin 2, by Scott Tallon Walker Architects; Mimetic House, Dromaheir, Co Leitrim by Dominic Stevens Architect.
