'"The Lives of Spaces" Lynch exhibit in the Irish Pavilion at the Venice Biennale'
09 Sep 2008
This aspect of villa culture is not unique to Ancient Rome or to Renaissance villas, but something that continues to fascinate patrons and architects, resulting in some of the most unique and satisfying examples of contemporary architecture. The legacy of this tradition is particularly clear at Bothar Bui, and Patrick and Simon traced also its influence upon their own projects, including Marsh View in Norfolk. The exhibition was accompanied by a film narrated by Seamus Heaney, whose collection Seeing Things was partly written at Bothar Bui, and whose poem An Architect commemorates Robin Walker.
