McCULLOUGH MULVIN

mccullough mulvin architects

Niall McCullough studied architecture at University College Dublin and in Rome, where he spent a year drawing and coming to understand the relationship between architecture and time, planning a practice with Valerie Mulvin which would include writing, research and making buildings. On his return to Ireland and encouraged by Aldo Rossi, they collaborated on “A Lost Tradition, the nature of architecture in Ireland” which explored the typological nature of Ireland’s vernacular buildings, then founded McCullough Mulvin Architects in 1986. The practice has gone on to produce numerous award winning educational and civic buildings, making public architecture in Ireland’s important towns, their native city of Dublin, on the Trinity College campus at its heart- and now in Patiala University in the Indian Punjab.

Niall’s later books, such as Dublin, An Urban History and Palimpsest: Intervention & Change in Irish Architecture, reflect particular interests both in the power of contemporary architecture to shape the future of Dublin and in the innovative re-use of existing fabric to achieve it- exploring these ideas through writing and building in the Georgian core. He has recently spearheaded new explorations of architecture and film in the practice, making films about work placed in specific locations in Ireland, Portugal and shortly in India. The practice has been published extensively and exhibited widely; Niall has lectured on the work in Europe and the USA. In 2015, the work of the practice was documented for an international audience by the publication of a monograph by TC Cuadernos ‘McCullough Mulvin Arquitectura 2004-2015’.

 

Valerie Mulvin studied architecture in UCD, graduating in 1981. Following this she spent a year in Rome on a post graduate scholarship analyzing and drawing the layers of history in the city based on a serial study of the Nolli maps. On her return to Ireland she and Niall McCullough collaborated together on a book, A Lost Tradition, the nature of architecture in Ireland (Gandon Editions, Dublin 1987) which involved in primary research and on-site work on Ireland’s vernacular buildings, a seminal book. In 1991 she completed a Masters in Urban Studies at TCD (MLitt) with work on the Morphology of Irish Towns. Together with Niall McCullough, she founded McCullough Mulvin Architects in 1986. The practice has gone on to produce numerous award winning buildings and the work has been exhibited widely and published extensively: In 2015, the work of the practice was documented for an international audience by the publication of a monograph by TC Cuadernos ‘McCullough Mulvin Arquitectura 2004-2015.

Valerie has lectured on the work of the practice in Ireland, India, Spain, Germany, Norway, the UK, Czech Republic and Portugal. She has been involved in teaching and examining at University College Dublin; School of Architecture DIT; Queens University, Belfast; Cesuga, A Coruna, Spain; Cardiff University; Dundee University; and has been visiting critic at EPFL Lausanne, Switzerland’ Queens University Belfast, DIT Dublin and A Coruna, Spain. She is currently an external examiner at Edinburgh University.
