Lorcan O’Herlihy Architects


Architecture influences the way we live and the way we live influences architecture. Lorcan O’Herlihy Architects – Architecture Is a Social Act explores these two ideas at the core of LOHA’s work and shows how one informs the other. The book features 25 projects from across two decades and two continents, ranging in scope from housing projects and commercial complexes to cultural landmarks and master-planned communities. Each project demonstrates how the firm responds to the political, economic, and environmental forces that are shaping today’s cities by crafting architecture that offers a sense of place and belonging in a rapidly changing world.
