Project DescriptionIn partnership with the Chicago Architecture Biennial, New Horizon_architecture from Ireland is currently on display at the Chicago Design Museum, located in Block Thirty Seven (108 N. State St, 3rd Floor). New Horizon is part of Irish Design 2015, a year-long initiative backed by the Irish government which explores, promotes, and celebrates Irish design, locally and internationally.
Curated by Raymund Ryan and Nathalie Weadick, New Horizon_architecture from Ireland displays the work of three Dublin-based architecture firms—A2 Architects, GKMP Architects, and Ryan Kennihan—and presents ten emerging Irish architectural practices in the installation at the Chicago Design Museum.
Our role in this exhibition was constructing the communal table at the center of the installation space. The table, which is inspired by the traditional decorative arts of Ireland, features a reflective surface and a 360° view of the work on display.
