John McLaughlin Architects is a design focused studio based in Dun Laoghaire. Their practice works at many different scales and across a wide range of project types. They are particularly interested in connections between architecture and the wider landscape and built environment. They design masterplans, landscapes, buildings, houses, public art and exhibitions. Prior to establishing the practice in 2010, John was director of architecture with the Dublin Docklands Authority where he was responsible for the design of many of the public spaces in the docklands including the Grand Canal Harbour District.
Taking their inspiration from Irish modern architects and designers, their designs have been noted for their beauty, understated elegance and playfulness. They have received many awards and have participated in a number of exhibitions. John curated the Irish Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale 2012 titled Shifting Ground, and (with Gary A. Boyd) he curated and designed the Irish Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale 2014 titled Infra Éireann.
