Irish architects up for BSI Swiss Architectural Award

 

HATS OFF to Dublin-based Donaghy and Dimond Architects and to Dominic Stevens, who lives and works in Co Leitrim, on being shortlisted for the BSI Swiss Architectural Award – because they were in good company, along with Atelier Bow Wow from Japan.

This year marks the third international award by the BSI Architectural Foundation in Lugano. Its purpose is to highlight young global architects “whose work has made a significant contribution to contemporary architectural theory and practice”.

Studio Mumbai, from India, won the award, which is backed by the Swiss Federal Office for Culture in Bern and the Mendrisio Academy of Architecture at Università della Svizzera Italiana; both Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara, of Grafton Architects, teach in Mendrisio.

Founded in 2001 by Marcus Donaghy and Will Dimond, Donaghy Dimond Architects has won numerous awards for its residential designs.

Unconventional architect Dominic Stevens runs a website ( irishvernacular.com) that gives practical information on how to build your own house for as little as €25,000.
