The Dublin Dental Hospital by McCullough Mulvin Architects and the Department of Finance by Grafton Architects – both RIAI Architecture Award Winners – are featured in the current issue of the Shanghai architecture journal Time + Architecture. The magazine is published by TongJi University – one of China’s leading architecture and design universities.
Publication in Time + Architecture is the outcome of the RIAI’s strategic focus on supporting practices with internationalisation. The RIAI Assistant Director and Executive have developed the internationalisation initiative to support practices and gain awareness of and opportunities for Irish architecture abroad. This has resulted in a number of Irish architectural showcases abroad. In October 2012, the RIAI led a showcase of Irish architecture – comprising an exhibition, lectures and networking sessions – in Shanghai. This was followed by a return visit of TongJi’s Department of Architecture to Ireland last year, when the delegation visited schools of architecture as well as building projects throughout Ireland.
