Open to new and diverse voices, conversations, and critical perspectives Story, Building is a new publishing press that aims to explore the value and meaning of architecture in contemporary Ireland. Architecture has been cut adrift from much contemporary discussion. Framed as part of a divisive popular discourse that thrives on click-through headlines and binary, instant-reactions, architecture depends on an image driven media discourse that celebrates the spectacle and the novel, stripping architecture of its social, spatial, and material agency. Intended for both a public and professional audience, Story, Building will unravel, assess, and redraw the terms and conditions under which architecture (in all its forms, by all its constituents) is produced, used and consumed, its very causes and its effects.
