Serving as a massive clearinghouse for information about contemporary and historic architecture and urban design practices in Ireland, this site contains the archives of several major organizations, including the Irish Architectural Archive and the Irish Landscape Institute. Maintained by Paul Clerkin, a native of Ireland, the site features a calendar of upcoming events and forums related to Irish architecture, along with a book review section and material about national and international architecture competitions. Along with this general material, visitors can find profiles of several major and influential Irish architects, including essays on the work of Eileen Gray, Michael Scott, and Kevin Roche (who may be best known in the US for working on the Gateway Arch in St. Louis and the TWA Terminal at JFK Airport in New York). Architects, architectural students, and historians will also find the discussion boards featured here an excellent way to share ideas with others around the world.
