Post Industrial

Dublin School of Architecture Press
€ 0.00 EUR

Post Industrial features a series of essays by an up-and-coming generation of Irish architects discussing the physical and material world of Irish industrial settlements in a whole new light. Using their professional skill set they have created a new appreciation of how these villages worked as social spaces, while at the same time highlighting future conservation priorities.
