Scott Tallon Walker

A partnership between University College Dublin and the National Library of Ireland, the Museum of Literature Ireland (MoLI) is a new landmark cultural institution in the heart of Ireland’s capital city. Architects Scott Tallon Walker were engaged to transform the Aula Maxima at Newman House into a modern museum building while creating universal access across the historic site where UCD was founded.

The aims of the architectural project included developing a world-class exhibition centre, integrating Newman House into a wider city context, and weaving the buildings together into a better functioning integral whole. The main visible architectural intervention is the creation of a new stair and lift core clad in glass with an interstitial veil of copper filigree. The scheme has been designed in such a way that the new works are to the rear of the buildings and have minimal impact on the historic fabric.

Pre-book Only.
