Speaker Profile: Michael Hayes


Michael Hayes is the editor of 2ha – a printed magazine, that looks to suburbia and architecture to fill its pages. The ninth issue has recently been published and is based on the theme of how our leisure activities shape our suburban landspace.

In each issue four essays are published. The essays are written by architects, academics and artists and are based on various themes. Past issues have covered the relationship between suburbia and photography, cinema, history, typology, language, modernism and public space.

Michael is an architect living and practising in Dublin who is seemingly obsessed with publications. As well as editing 2ha, he is an editorial board member of Architecture Ireland and Publications Officer for the Architectural Association of Ireland.
