Illuminating Art & Ideas
To coincide with the launch of Maynooth University’s new Strategic Plan, Illuminations revisits Robin Walker’s iconic Arts Building (1970-1977).
Built on the North Campus as an educational hub, housing several academic departments, a library and a social area, the Art Building was a visionary building – contemporary, light, and conceived via a modernist aesthetic that was both sparse and beautiful.
‘Redemption’ features photographs of the building just after its completion and an extensive range of details from the original plans.
