In this episode Andrew Clancy and Laura Evans interview Alice Casey and Can Deegan of TAKA Architects in Dublin.

Over their 10 years of practice Alice and Cian have designed a series of remarkable buildings, which clearly illustrate the concerns of the office.
Most obvious there is a recurrent engagement with context, making buildings which are grounded in the forms and materials of their physical situation. There is more at work than this - most intriguingly a continual engagement with the potentials for architecture to accrete meaning through its engagement as a protagonist in ritual and habit. Here they draw their references very widely, most particularly from a series of lengthy journeys they made in the first few years of their practice. Here we see a robust territorial architecture engaging with global conversations, making something new and yet of its place.
