Bucholz McEvoy: GLASHAUS_04 Exhibition at the DAZ

Posted on 25. October 2011 by kristienring

High Quality – Low Energy Design

Bucholz McEvoy Architects (Dublin / Berlin) are one of the most successful architectural offices in Ireland. Their projects combine ecology and design to create extraordinary solutions, which have been awarded by the Royal Institute of British Architects, the Royal Institute of Irish Architects and many others.

Already with their first realized project, Fingal County Council, Merritt Bucholz (born 1966) and Karen McEvoy (born 1962) broke new ground for sustainable, low energy design in the public sector in Ireland. Since then, the office has grown to 23 employees and has completed more than 20 building for public and private clients.  At GLASHAUS_04, BMcEA will introduce their approach, focusing on their most recent project, Elm Park Development, a mini-city of over 100.000 sqm – with apartments, a health clinic, a hotel, offices, senior citizen housing and a leisure center – set in a green urban public space.

Drawings, prototypes and models visualize the design process. BMcEA will be present in Berlin beyond the exhibition – parallel to the show, they open their first office outside of Ireland in Berlin. www.bmcea.com
