In chapter 5 of Books Downstairs, come and hear designers Peter Maybury, Colin Farmer and Noelle Cooper discuss designing books about architecture, in conversation with designer Emma Conway.

With decades of experience and hundreds of design projects between them, this panel is sure to provide a feast for the eyes and minds of those interested in what goes into the visual communication and creative exploration of architecture in (2D) books.

Peter Maybury is an Irish multidisciplinary artist who has collaborated extensively with artists and institutions, editors and curators on more than 200 art and architecture publications. Peter is a longstanding collaborator with Tom dePaor, making books, films, photographs, and works for exhibition. Their Gall Editions imprint has published 12 titles to date, including Irlanda: of de Blacam and Meagher (2010), part of their co-curation of the Irish Pavilion at the 12th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia. Peter is author of Make Ready (2015) and co-author with dePaor of Of (2012) and Reservoir (2010). Peter is designer, contributing writer, and co-editor with Ciarán Nugent of Throw Away: Nightclub Flyers 1990-99 (2022). With Paul Clarke he co-edited the eight-volume Notations (2016), featuring work by dePaor, O’Donnell+Tuomey, and Grafton Architects; and with Dennis McNulty he co-curated and edited the Underground exhibition and book (2008).

Irish Architecture Foundation

About Established in 2005, the Irish Architecture Foundation (IAF) is an independent organisation dedicated to the promotion of architecture as culture. We encourage people to engage with their built environment, to inspire new ways of thinking about architecture. We truly believe architecture has the power to improve the way we live and how we think about our built environment. By bringing people together from diverse backgrounds and disciplines, we can create a more inclusive conversation that will inspire a better-built environment for everyone.
