For the first time, due to the increasing public demand to revisit the work of this brilliant architect, an exhibition of detailed scale models of his buildings will be launched at the Irish Architectural Archive on March 19th 2015. The models will be accompanied by the original black-and-white photographs taken by the world-renowned architectural photographer, John Donat, as well as a publication containing a selection of his essays and written research, illustrated by Walker’s drawings and three unbuilt projects for the artists Louis le Brocquy and Theo Bull.

The launch of the exhibition will coincide with the première of a feature-length documentary by Sé Merry Doyle titled “Talking to My Father”, based on an imaginary dialogue between Walker and his son Simon, also an architect, who traces his father’s journey from the high-point of his career to his eventual retreat from practice, following the demise of modernism in Ireland in the late 1970’s.
