Paddy Cahill (1977-2021) was a leading filmmaker of short architectural, art, and urban documentaries. Join us for a unique celebratory screening of 3 films completed before he passed.
'Commonspace' about Neil Hegarty's 1968 housing development in Dundanion, Cork.
'Circle | Square' about Niall Scott, of Scott Tallon Walker, and Goff's Bloodstock Sales Complex, designed in 1975 in Co. Kildare.
'Tulach a' tSolais' about sculptor Michael Warren and architect Ronnie Tallon's collaborative 1798 Memorial at Oulart, Co. Wexford, opened in 1999.
The screening is introduced by architect Shane O'Toole, who collaborated with Paddy on the films. After the screening is a panel discussion with academic Dr Gul Kacmaz Erk, filmmaker Tadhg O'Sullivan, and historian Dr Ellen Rowley.
The live screening has now passed, however you can still view the films on the IFI@Home website.
This event is part of the Irish Architecture Foundation's International Summer School, which this year explores the theme of Architecture and Media through a number of seminars and workshops.

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.
