O’Donnell + Tuomey, established by Sheila O’Donnell and John Tuomey in 1988, has been involved with urban design, cultural and educational buildings, houses and housing projects in Ireland, the Netherlands and the UK. Urban regeneration and landscape integrated design have been consistent themes of their partnership. They have established a critical common ground for their practice with the site-specific origins of their concepts. They have a shared belief in the continuity of social and cultural values in architecture. Their reflective practice is closely connected to their commitment to architectural education. They are currently working on university projects for the London School of Economics and the Central European University Budapest.

Winners of more than 60 national and international awards for their work across the past twenty five years; O’Donnell + Tuomey have been seven times winners of the AAI Downes Medal; four times finalists for the Mies Van der Rohe Award for European Architecture; three times shortlisted for the Stirling Prize; and winners of the RIAI Gold Medal in 2005. They were selected to represent Ireland in a solo exhibition at the Venice Biennale in 2004. John Tuomey is author of Architecture Craft and Culture, published by Gandon Editions.
