TRANSFORMATION OF AN INSTITUTION The Furniture College Letterfrack

Published to mark Ireland’s participation in the Venice Biennale 2004, this heavily illustrated book provides an outline history of Letterfrack and documents O’Donnell + Tuomey’s transformation of the institution at its heart. Essays by Shane O’Toole, John Tuomey and Sheila O’Donnell are supported by a revealing, extended interview between Ireland’s Commissioner and the architects, who describe the dramatic, metamorphic approach they have adopted in Venice’s Arsenale to the perennially difficult task of exhibiting architecture.
