Grafton Architects: Inspiration and Process in Architecture
1 Jan 2014
The book tells the attention that Grafton Architects lend to the public role of architecture. The drawings published here gather together personal looks, references and materials relative to six projects of spaces for research, education and culture which have been built or presented at competitions: the Bocconi University in Milan; the extension of the Mackintosh Glasgow School of Art; the new campus for UTEC University in Lima; the Medical School in Limerick; the Toulouse School of Economics UT1C; and the Solstice Arts Centre in Navan. This book forms an archipelago of fragments which, layered over each other, enable us to narrate a way of observing and practicing architecture, between the freedom of inspiration and the rationality of the process.
