This exhibition marks the return home to Ireland of the McCullough Mulvin Displaced Longitude film exhibition, which was on show in the Porto Metro in October 2017. The show is starting its Irish tour in the Chapel Royal Dublin Castle on March 8th for a week in association with a significant Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht conference on 9th March called “Shaping the Future- Urban Regeneration and Adaptive Re-use. Towards Developing a Culture of Innovation and Design”.

The four week exhibition in the Porto Sao Bento metro station showcases the architectural work of McCullough Mulvin Architects in Dublin to a Portuguese and international audience. The main concourse of Sao Bento, located beside the main Porto railway station, is a much-used exhibition space in the city. It is appropriate that work from an Irish practice should be shown in Porto. The two countries share extraordinary similarities of location in Europe – the Atlantic, large neighbours to the East. Their differences are ones of latitude not longitude.

The exhibition illustrates McCullough Mulvin’s architecture in Ireland and in India through seven current projects; buildings exploring the fertile relationship of architecture, nature and time – architecture like natural form in tense or loose geometries, or new adhering to old like moss to stones. The exhibition is through the medium of film within and around a timber pavilion in the main concourse. It comprises three films that are about current architectural projects – completed, in design evolution, one under construction. Two are of urban scale – Thapar University in the Indian Punjab and Trinity College in Dublin, where the practice has built three major projects in an historic university. Another two projects are palimpsests, partly new and partly old – St Mary’s Medieval Mile Museum in Kilkenny and the Military Archives project in Dublin, where new elements are like accretions on older ones. And three relate specifically to ideas of ‘constructed’ geographies – Kishoge School in west Dublin, the Beaufort Laboratory in Cork and Waterford Fire Station in Waterford City.
