TC Cuadernos invite you to architecture & time an exhibition and book to celebrate the work of the Dublin practice McCullough Mulvin Architects, launched by Prof. Mark Dorrian. This event in association with the Cervantes Institute represents Spanish architectural culture spreading its wings in the international context. The work of McCullough Mulvin represents an unsual link between architecture in Ireland and Spain. The practice have made a study of Spanish contemporary architecture over several years and have visited and recorded many contemporary projects (the work of Sobejano Nieto, RCR, Selgos Cano and many more). They have a particular affinity with the idea of contemporary practice in a defined geography such as practiced by architects like RCR in Catalonia – working on the basis that quality and universal values in architecture can be achieved outside metropolitan centres. The influence of Spanish practice on their own work can be seen in formal and material contexts, for instance the geometric stone form of the Ussher Library in Trinity College Dublin, the timber interior of Waterford Library and a particular approach to radical intervention into existing buildings (Dublin Dental Hospital and Rush Library) which is essentially Spanish in nature.
