Artifice: Dermot Foley Landscape Architects is the first comprehensive volume about the Irish architectural practice Dermot Foley Landscape Architects. Since its inception in 2001, Dermot Foley Landscape Architects has developed an enviable amount of successful projects from an impressive list of clients, contributing its own distinctive voice to the rapidly evolving Irish landscape as well as to a number of locations beyond Ireland. This beautifully designed volume celebrates ten years of Dermot Foley by reflecting on some of the most emblematic projects developed by its vibrant team, but even more poignantly, by unveiling the practice's underlying design ethic. This publication is therefore more ambitious than a general catalogue of work; it presents, rather, an analysis of the ideas and themes that have emerged through the collective interactions between Dermot Foley's varied team of architects, designers, urban planners and horticulturists, and which have informed Dermot Foley's projects to date. This volume reflects the holistic approach to landscape design that has been at the basis of the practice's projects and offers new insights into this multi-award winning firm. Artifice includes essays by theorists and practitioners such as Krystallia Kamvasinou, Simon Canz and Dermot Foley himself, providing expert reflections on the practice's approach to landscape as well as its impact on the nature and future development of the Irish built environment.
