The fascinating life and career of Marion Mahony Griffin, one of America’s earliest professional female architects, comes under the spotlight. The daughter of an emigrant from Cork, Marion Mahony Griffin (1871- 1961) played a pivotal role in the studio of Frank Lloyd Wright, and in town planning and architecture in America, Australia and India. This public event during ILFD is inspired by the cross-disciplinary Mahony Griffin book club, who will analyse and discuss short extracts from her unpublished four volume memoir, The Magic of America.
In conjunction with the Irish Architecture Foundations Curating Architecture Residency, a symposium and film screening will be held to launch a summer exhibition.
Programmed by Irish Architecture Foundation in association with International Literature Festival Dublin
