Talking To My Father

Documentary 1h 30m 2014

Modern architecture in Ireland reached a high point in the early ’60s and one of its most celebrated figures was Robin Walker. Robin studied under Le Corbusier and later worked alongside Mies van der Rohe in Chicago. His return to Ireland coincided with the emergence of a modern nation and Walker became a key agent in this process.

A quarter of a century after his death, his son Simon Walker, also an architect, explores the legacy of his father’s work. Sé Merry Doyle allows Walker’s buildings to speak for themselves, taking us with Simon in his search for Robin’s architecture of place.
