IFI DOCUMENTARY FESTIVAL: Kevin Roche: The Quiet Architect

MARK NOONAN

Book Tickets

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Mark Noonan and producer John Flahive.

Still working at the age of 95, Pritzker Prize winning Irish-American architect Kevin Roche has reached the top of his profession, but has not sought fame and little is known about him outside architectural circles.

He has worked to ensure people’s well-being by bringing nature into the buildings they inhabit. His philosophies can be seen in his glorious buildings throughout the US – from the Oakland Museum in California to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. His only Irish work is the Convention Centre, Dublin.

This screening is part of the IFI Documentary Festival 2017 – find out more information here.
