When Paddy Delany, Eoin MacVeigh and James Pike founded Delany MacVeigh and Pike in 1964, Ireland was coming from a very different place. Since then, our population has almost doubled, our economy has grown exponentially, and our values have changed radically to usher in an inclusive, diverse and secular society. This book chronicles the wide-ranging and often groundbreaking work of DMP and its successor firm, O’Mahony Pike over five decades.
The book includes a detailed illustrated history of this leading Irish architectural practice from its origins as DMP, an in-depth interview with James Pike and John O’Mahony, and a range of authoritative illustrated essays on housing and urban design. It features over 60 key buildings and projects by OMP, ranging from innovative housing to headquarter office buildings and international ho- tels, post-primary schools to primary care centres, local area plans to urban master plans.
The work embraces architectural conservation, urban infill, large-scale brownfield redevelopment, and the visualisation and planning of completely new towns.
