Modern architecture in Ireland reached a high point in the early ’60s and one of its most celebrated figures was Robin Walker. Robin studied under Le Corbusier and later worked alongside Mies van der Rohe in Chicago. Upon his return to Ireland he became a key agent in the shaping of the emerging modern nation.

Looking again to Dublin’s streets which he has so faithfully recorded in earlier works (James Gandon, A Life; Alive, Alive Oh!), Sé Merry Doyle follows Simon Walker, a quarter of a century after Robin’s death, as he explores the legacy of his father’s work. The film allows Walker’s buildings to speak for themselves, taking us with Simon in his search for Robin’s architecture of place.

Join the IAF for a screening of this documentary, directed by Sé Merry Doyle, in our intimate auditorium space at 6.30pm on 14 or 15 November.
