In 2015 Ireland was selected as the international country of focus at the London Festival of Architecture. Under the title of New Horizon, curators Ray Ryan and Nathalie Weadick asked a number of Irish architects to make a series of exhibitions in London. Clancy Moore Architects, Steve Larkin Architects and TAKA Architects collaborated on a single pavilion sited at the north end of Cubitt Square in King’s Cross. Although our practices have an engaged conversation on many levels this was our first collaborative work. We sought at all times to engage opportunistically with the constraints proposed by the project. Using a shared territory of reference and pragmatic engagement we built the design through a 3 month long conversation about the city between our practices.
