For nearly three decades, the best-selling and highly acclaimed NEW IRISH ARCHITECTURE series has been compre­hensively docu­menting the best of contemporary Irish architecture through the buildings and projects featured in the annual AAI AWARDS for Excellence in Architectural Design. Entries are judged by a panel of five Irish and international assessors, offering a unique critical appraisal of contemporary Irish architecture. Each volume of New Irish Architecture carries copious drawings and photographs, architects' descriptions and the assessors' comments on every awarded and commended scheme. Volumes from no. 16 onwards also carry a keynote essay by the international critic on that year's jury. The series was established for the AAI by Gandon Editions in 1986. In 2001 (with volume 16), a new, much-expanded and more book-like octavo-format was adopted, allowing more coverage that before. Small numbers of some earlier volumes are still available (contact Gandon for details). The keynote essay in vol. 27 is "Refuse and the body Politic", by Joseph Rykwert. The Award-winning buildings featured are: Lyric Theatre, Belfast, by O'Donnell + Tuomey; House on Mount Anville, Dublin 14, by Aughey O'Flaherty; Laneway Wall Garden House, by Donaghy + Dimond; House in Bogwest, Co Wexford, by Steve Larkin Architects; Butterfly House, Co Leitrim, by LiD Architecture. Commendations are: Sheltered Spaces, by A2 Architects; Formwork by Architecture Republic; House, Backyard, John Dillon Street, Dublin 8, by Boyd Cody; Extension and Renovation in Portobello, by Donal Colfer Architect; Edge of Town - Local Area Offices, Claremorris; by Simon J Kelly + Partners; Long Room Hub, Trinity College Dublin, by McCullough Mulvin. Also features the Maurice Craig Award 2012, awarded to Rethinking the Great South Wall, by Patrick Phelan (UCD), with commendations for Catherine Blaney (QUB), Sinéad MacMahon (SAUL) and Claire McMenamin (UCD).
