An Gaelaras, by O'Donnell and Tuomey: The Building blocks of Language: Review by Rick LeVert and Tarla MacGabhann

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    The opening of An Gaelaras - the Irish language cultural centre in Derry designed by O'Donnell + Tuomey - is the most significant architectural addition to the symbolic landscape of the Walled City in recent times. It marks nothing less than a physical re-surfacing and a normalisation of the Irish language in this long fragmented city. This alone places An Gaelaras in a delicate historical arc that spans over 1500 years of architectural heritage and links it with the now invisible ruins of St Columba's original 6th century monastery.
