Part reflection and projection, in this episode architect Derek Tynan talks about arriving back to Dublin the 1980s, then, he calls, finding Dublin as a city of decay. He recalls how then a new culture of confidence of architecture took hold in Ireland; Group 91 got going and got the gig; he reflects on how G91 could not exist now; the perennial issue of procurement; and how housing is being designed today. The second in our series on the architects who designed Temple Bar in 1991.
