Exhibition celebrates outstanding Irish engineer Peter Rice


11 October 2013:   An exhibition celebrating the work of Peter Rice, one of the outstanding structural engineers of the late 20th century, is on view at Farmleigh Gallery in the Phoenix Park.  Hosted by the OPW, the exhibition explores the life and work of the RIBA Gold Medal Winner, who worked on iconic buildings such as the Sydney Opera House, LLoyds Bank in London, and the Centre Pompidou in Paris. 

Born in Dundalk, Peter worked with Ove ARUP Partnership during this entire professional career.  He died at the early age of 57, and this exhibition marks the 20th anniversary of his death.  It has been exhibited in Paris and in London, and has now moved to Dublin where it will be on view until the end of this year. 

To coincide with the holding of the exhibition, ARUP hopes to encourage students of structural engineering and other disciplines to visit the Farmleigh Gallery and will host a number of specific events that will be of particular interest to students.  If you would like to attend any of these events please contact joseph.kindregan@dit.ie
