A look at the fabric of Dublin’s streetscapes, by twenty experts in architecture, planning and design. Dublin has undergone many changes in its long evolution, leaving it with a rich and varied architectural heritage: a Viking and medieval street layout, a famous Georgian core and a treasure trove of Victorian landmark buildings, along with some stunning, cutting-edge modern design. This sumptuously illustrated book charts the last century of Dublin’s development, and asks how we can – and how we should – shape our city for the future.
