Irish Eyes are Smiling: Conviction that the recession is over is prompting N Irish practices to spread their wings

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

"Strategies for success - Reach, niche, infiltration and smart.
Northern Ireland is a minute ecosystem of architectural practice worthy of consideration. Various modes of operation can be found here, from big city cut and thrust to rural calmness, from exquisite craft to smart commercialism. Many now refer to the recent dip in the fortunes of the construction industry as historical and larger practices claim, “for us the recession is over”. Although only embedded within 1.7 million people, Northern Ireland’s community of architects show a variety of strategies to encourage success, as defined in their terms. Reach, niche, infiltration and smart are only the beginning."
