Remembering Niall McCullough


The IAF was saddened to learn of the death of the renowned Irish architect, Niall McCullough.

“When the IAF started out he encouraged us to be brave, open and pioneering. He remained a support and guiding light for 15 years. Even though he was one of the giants of Irish architecture, he made us feel important. He regularly and generously contributed to our talks, exhibitions and films. He, along with Valerie and all at McCullough Mulvin Architects helped us raise the profile of Irish architecture in New York and Venice, and at home in Dublin through Open House. His soft voice and exceptional buildings vividly engaged our audience. He made it so easy for us to do our job. I (and the world) thought we would have more time with him. It is beyond sad.”

Nathalie Weadick, Director IAF

As a tribute to Niall we share Aerial, the film he made with Dyehouse Films for us last year for Open House Dublin. In a fascinating flyover of Dublin you’ll see three buildings by McCullough Mulvin Architects, from a bird’s eye view. Niall reveals the shape of the south city centre through its roofscape, as the camera moves across Temple Bar Galleries, Trinity College, Pearse St and the Dental Hospital on Lincoln Place. A new perspective of the city and McCullough Mulvin’s buildings within it.

The IAF send our condolences to Valerie and all at McCullough Mulvin Architects.
