Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara founded Grafton Architects黄色视频网 - 免费午夜福利不卡片在线 in 1978, after they met each other at the School of Architecture at University College Dublin. The practice, named after the street where the duo's first office was located, has been awarded this year’s prestigious 2020 Pritzker Award. Grafton's built work reflects the continued search of architectural excellence, in buildings ranging from small scale housing to large public volumes.
