Glucksman Gallery

Close Encounter: Meetings with remarkable buildings

Curated by Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara, Close Encounter was presented at the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale as part of the FREESPACE exhibition in the Central Pavilion.

Curated by Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara, Close Encounter: Meetings with Remarkable Buildings was presented at the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale as part of the FREESPACE exhibition in the Central Pavilion. With the support of the Arts Council of Ireland, sixteen Irish architectural practices were commissioned to respond to significant buildings of the curators’ choosing. The works are unique pieces that take a defined work of architecture as their starting point to explore the ways in which creative interpretation can allow for new forms to evolve. The experience of moving among these different forms allows for an understanding of the ingenuity and plurality of contemporary Irish architecture. Includes work by A2 Architects, Boyd Cody, Bucholz McEvoy Architects, Carr Cotter & Naessens Architects, Clancy Moore Architects, Tom de Paor, Dominic Stevens, JFOC, Donaghy + Dimond architects, GKMP Architects, Hassett Ducatez Architects, Heneghan Peng Architects, Kevin Donovan & Ryan W. Kennihan Architects, Mary Laheen & Aoibheann Ní Mhearáin, Noreile Breen, Steve Larkin, Taka Architects
