Launch: AV Monographs 264 Níall McLaughlin Architects

Performing & Visual Arts

Join us for the launch of AV Monographs 264: Níall McLaughlin Architects, where we'll be joined by the architect.

The latest issue of AV Monographs takes stock of Níall McLaughlin Architects with a selection of twenty works, introduced by a conversation with the historian Adrian Forty. Featured in chronological order, with the exception of the two prayer rooms that open and close the list, these key projects reflect a commitment to the discipline that makes no distinctions of scale or program. Floor plans of bold geometry and facades of tactile sensuality are as present in the domestic projects of Piper’s End and Goleen as they are in the large buildings for the universities of Oxford and Cambridge, as well as in the civic complexes in London and Limerick, in all of which shines the so very British spirit of honouring the past without ceasing to look in the direction of the future.

NÍALL MCLAUGHLIN designs buildings for education, culture, health, religious worship and housing. He won Young British Architect of the Year in 1998 and received the RIBA Charles Jencks Award for Simultaneous Contribution to Theory and Practice in 2016. Níall was elected an Aosdána Member for Outstanding Contribution to the Arts in Ireland and as a Royal Academician in the Category of Architecture in 2019. In 2020 he was awarded an Honorary MBE for Services to Architecture. Níall has been shortlisted for the RIBA Stirling Prize in 2013, 2015, 2018 and winner in 2022 for The New Library, Magdalene College.

We are delighted to welcome Níall to the bookshop to celebrate the launch of the publication over refreshments.
