Dublin School of Architecture Press
UTOPIA 7 is a published a study of utopian settlements in Ireland by students in the Dublin School of Architecture. Each student identified one village to study, which was then visited, researched, and mapped, while studying international precedents and the theoretical underpinnings of utopian ideologies. The subject is far from exhausted with many worthy candidates such as the Quaker influenced town of Mountmellick and the Rev. Nangle’s Protestant Missionary Settlement at Achill Island regrettably omitted. The articles are edited extracts from the students’ more comprehensive dissertations.
