This Loopline documentary follows the life of  architect, James Gandon, whose plans were realised when Ireland operated under British colonial rule.

James Gandon (1743–1823) is recognised today as one of the leading architects to have worked in Ireland in the late 18th century and early 19th century. His neo-classical buildings still dominate Dublin’s urban landscape, including the Custom House, the Four Courts, King’s Inns and Emo Court in County Laois. The viewer is offered an extensive overview of the life and times of Gandon through the generous contributions of Maurice Craig, Hugo Duffy, Edward McParland and David Slattery.
