Solas Nua's CIFF@Home with NYU DC Dialogues presents, Kevin Roche: The Quiet Architect.
Pritzker Prize winning architect Kevin Roche is an enigma. He reached the top of his profession, but had little interest in celebrity and eschews the label “Starchitect”. Despite a lifetime of acclaimed work that includes 40 years designing new galleries for The Met in New York, he had no intention of ever retiring. He graduated from UCD in 1945, and after more than 60 years in the USA, his first Irish project, the Convention Centre Dublin, opened in 2010. Roche's architectural philosophy focused on creating “a community for a modern society” and he has been credited with creating green buildings before they became part of the public consciousness.
Kevin Roche: The Quiet Architect was produced by John Flahive for Wavelength Pictures in association with Nicky Gogan and Karla Healion at Stills Films, with the participation of the Irish Film Board / Bord Scannáin na hÉireann, and Just Films|Ford Foundation.
Pre-recorded Q&A with director Mark Noonan in conversation with Solas Nua board member Kate Meenan-Waugh.
