Making Belfield – Space and Place
This beautifully designed book is a celebration of UCD since the late 1960s, and explicitly since 1970.
For the past generation or more, the original Belfield masterplan by Andrzej Wejchert has not been analysed or appreciated, and public opinion has often misunderstood the architecture as a ‘concrete jungle’.
The book ‘Making Belfield’ examines the architecture from an academic perspective, to focus on the origins and importance of UCD’s architecture, collections and libraries, and also, to raise awareness of the excellence of the Belfield campus and its original architectural components.
The essays will evoke memories of Belfield and of time spent there in the various spaces and places and will give the reader a deeper understanding of the place that has shaped so many.
