Best of 2010

In late 2009 I joined the ranks at the Irish Architecture Foundation and as a result I Like Local* started covering a lot more about the built environment. Most of the popular posts in 2010 were architecture-related (the most popular of all being about Open House Dublin, the biggest project I worked on with the IAF). Below are a couple of those archi-highlights. In 2010 I also spent most of my time in Dublin, but guest writer Colm Keller gave a little insight into design goings-on in Sweden in January of that year.

ODOS do some of the most interesting work in Dublin on the residential scale, particularly in terms of material use.

This Must Be The (Right) Place

Another exciting Dublin-based architecture practice is Architecture Republic, whose collaborative nature and exploration of architecture as an artwork led to holding an exhibition in a house conversion of theirs.

On Open House Dublin weekend I made it to two buildings designed by Henry J. Lyons Architects, and really enjoyed seeing both clever designs.
