Very heavy Large format Hardback book.

This 284-page, large-format monograph features 90 projects and buildings from the 1960s to the present, and is copiously illustrated with 549 photographs and drawings.

Featured in the book are such well-known buildings as the Administration Building, Arts Block and Sports Centre at University College Dublin, Ailwee Caves Visitor Centre, Blanchardstown Shopping Centre and the Helix Performing Arts Centre at Dublin City University.

Since moving to Ireland from Poland in 1964, after Andrzej won the master-plan competition for University College Dublin at Belfield, the Wejcherts have contributed impressively to Irish architecture.

Over a span of now four decades, their projects reveal an intellectual curiosity about contemporary architectural theories and languages. They exhibit eclectic affinities that include Brutalism and the megastructural (as with University College Dublin at Belfield); experimental prefabricated components (Ballincollig school; AnCo, Loughlinstown); Rural Organicism (Aillwee Cave); Postmodern composition (office blocks on Abbey and Lower Mount streets in Dublin); and now neo-Modern plastic form, as with the Media Business Centre in suburban Warsaw and The Helix Performing Arts Centre at Dublin City University.
