Critical Voices 3 - Speakers - Details

Tom de Paor

Tom de Paor graduated from the School of Architecture in University College Dublin (UCD) in 1991. In that year he won an architectural competition with Emma O'Neill to build a Visitor Centre at Ballincollig Co Cork. In 1996 he was awarded the contract to make a strategic master plan of the A13 motorway by the Council of Dagenham in the UK. He was appointed by the Cultural Relations Committee to make a representation at the Venice Biennale in 2000. He has been described as "the most original talent to emerge in Irish architecture in the past 10 years."

In respect of de Paor's Venice exhibit: "Multiple readings are facilitated by de Paor's discussion-based method of work, which is particularly Irish in the way that it makes use of language - word plays and double meanings."
