Marion Mahony Griffin: The Magic of America


Curating Architecture residents and the MMG bookclub they established present some findings on the life of one of America’s earliest female architects.

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 ILFDublin is inspired by the cross-disciplinary Mahony Griffin book club, who will analyse and discuss short extracts from her unpublished fourvolume memoir, The Magic of America.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.

Join the Marion Mahony Griffin bookclub for this symposium and film screening on Monday May 20 at the Royal Irish Academy. Tickets available here
