Cycling with… Max

20 Jan

We went cycling with Max – an art historian who knows everything about Amsterdam’s architecture. We learned about the band of ‘rogue’ architects behind the ‘Amsterdam School’, the famous architectural style of the 1900s for Amsterdams social housing projects — which still bring in millions of tourists to Amsterdam each year. Do check it out!

Cycling With… Ellen

Paddy Cahill and myself went for a cycle with Ellen Rowley. Ellen is an Architectural Historian who lives with her family in Ballybough, Dublin.

During our cycle, we talked to Ellen’s daughter Lillo, we looked at the architectural heritage in the north of Dublin (a beautiful part that often goes ignored), the architecture of the 20th Century and her special interest the social housing schemes by the former city architect Herbert Simms.

Ellen recently compiled a book of essays on Irish Architecture “i.e. Patterns of Thought”.
