A medium-sized Dublin-based practice, O'Donnell + Tuomey Architects have been involved with urban design, educational and cultural buildings, houses and housing projects in Ireland, the Netherlands and the UK. They have recently won competitions for two key projects in London: the Photographers Gallery and the London School of Economics Students' Centre.
Sheila O'Donnell and John Tuomey, who both teach at University College Dublin and lecture internationally, are the authors of this book. They look at the way in which different geographical, social and political influences have shaped their latest works and approach to architecture generally.
The book is divided into eight sections, each dealing with a different aspect of the practice's concerns: Studio, Courtyards, The World Outside, London Times, Subtraction and Addition, Venice Excursions, Building Ground and Cats Cradles. Specific photographic documentation has been produced for the purpose of inclusion in this book, so as to evoticatively capture its essence.
In the chapter dedicated to their numerous Venician excursions, Sheila O'Donnell and John Tuomey explain their on-going relation to the city's (as well as to its region's) heritage and contemporary culture. Not only has the practice represented Ireland at the 2004 International Venice Architecture Biennale, but their multiple 'encounters' with the works of Aldo Rossi, Carlo Scarpa, and Andrea Palladio, amongst others, have deeply influenced their work over the years. This is seen in elements such as the responsiveness of their buildings' forms to their sites, as well as by an interest in materiality, manifest in their facades as well as in their attention to detail and fascination for craft manufacturing processes.

Sheila O'Donnell and John Tuomey have worked together for more than 30 years. They pride themselves on being a studio-based practice, committed to the craft and culture of architecture, and approach each project with a fresh and open mind, "Our buildings do not look the same; each is a specific response to its brief and its physical and social context". O'Donnell + Tuomey were both Professors at University College Dublin where they taught for 40 years and still regularly teach and examine in schools in the US, UK and Europe, including Harvard, Princeton, Cambridge and the AA. They have exhibited six times in the Venice Biennale, and have received over 120 awards for their building worldwide. In 2015 they were awarded the RIBA Royal Gold Medal for a lifetime's work. Previous publications from Artifice Press include Saw Swee Hock: The Realisation of The London School of Economics Student Centre, published in 2015.
