Crafting and Grafting

Posted on May 29, 2019

Jude Barber took part in a talk for the launch of the Irish Architectural Foundation’s Journal ‘Building Material’ in Dublin, September 2018. During the talk, many people kept asking questions about how the practice was organised.

Following on from this, Michael Haynes editor of Architecture Ireland invited Jude to write an article about our structure for the latest issue of Architetcure Ireland (304- RIAI Issue).

Please see the attached link for the full publication 'Crafting and Grafting' ;

Jude outlines some of our founding principles, our organisational structure and working methods, whilst reflecting on Richards Sennetts book ‘The Craftsman’. She concludes that ‘We are working together, in a modest way, to hone that craft to create buildings and places that are fit for the challenges and opportunities of the twenty-first century'
