Emmett Scanlon

I am an architect, graduating with a Masters of Architecture from University College Dublin (UCD) in 2000. My work is concerned with the relationship between people and buildings and the role and purpose and impact of architecture on our everyday lives. My practice ranges across building and spatial design, public art, exhibition making and curation, research, teaching and writing.

In 2018 I was Assistant to the Curators, Shelley Mc Namara and Yvonne Farrell, for FREESPACE, the 16thInternational Architecture Exhibition, Venice.

I am Assistant Professor at UCD School of Architecture where I lead the Masters of Architecture Design Studio programs. Beyond this, I am Architectural Advisor to the Arts Council and am both an advocate for opportunities and supports for architects to develop their creative practices and to access work and for greater inclusion of all people in discussions and processes of architecture design, production and use.

I am currently undertaking his PhD by research, entitled, What Do Houses Do All Day, a study into some relationships between the Irish and their houses, at the TU Braunschweig, in Germany.
