We at Principal Construction are delighted to announce that the Brick House, Dalkey Avenue - designed by de Blacam and Meagher Architects, has been included in the list of 356 works competing for the 2017 European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – the Mies van der Rohe Award. 

"The nominated works are stimulating, innovative and have improved the existing conditions of their sites. They push boundaries and have set new standards based on strong collaborative and participatory strategies”, said Ivan Blasi, Coordinator of the Prize.

Good luck to all the entrants, but especially to de Blacam + Meagher!
