Building Material 20


Building Material is the journal of the Architectural Association of Ireland. The theme of Building Material 20 is ‘Building Material’.

Building Material is the sole, peer-reviewed, contemporary discourse on critical practice and scholarship in architecture in Ireland. Current thinking on architecture is explored thematically and critically evaluated in each issue, with analysis and ideas presented in light of related or overlapping disciplines. Developments, research and innovation in both practice and theory are thus posited and explored within the broader cultural context, reflecting the cultural, professional and scholastic position of contemporary architecture and architectural thinking within Ireland.
