Join us for the presentation of the 2020 Royal Gold Medal to Grafton Architects at a celebratory dinner.
Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara co-founded Dublin-based Grafton Architects in 1978, and work alongside directors Gerard Carty and Philippe O’Sullivan, who joined the practice in 1992. With an impressive portfolio of projects, the people-centred practice has achieved global recognition - most notably for its exemplary education buildings, many of which were commissioned following international competitions.
Given in recognition of a lifetime’s work, the Royal Gold Medal is approved personally by Her Majesty the Queen, and is given to a person or group of people who have had a significant influence 'either directly or indirectly on the advancement of architecture'.
From every ticket sold, £50 will go directly to the RIBA Student Support Fund. The RIBA is committed to supporting the next generation of architects, and the Student Support Fund provides vital assistance to architecture students who are most in need of financial support.
