Each year The Architectural League’s Current Work series features significant international figures who powerfully influence contemporary architectural practice and shape the future of the built environment. Róisín Heneghan and Shih-Fu Peng of heneghan peng architects will present their firm’s work in a public lecture.

heneghan peng architects rose to international prominence in 2003, when its design for the Grand Egyptian Museum was selected from over 1,500 competition entries. Scheduled to open in 2018, the museum will feature a translucent stone facade and dramatic views of the nearby Giza Pyramids.

The firm has since completed a number of designs won through competitions, including:

  • The Palestinian Museum, Birzeit, Palestine
  • University of Greenwich Library and Academic Building, London, UK
  • Giant’s Causeway Visitors Centre, Antrim, Northern Ireland.

Founded in New York in 1999, heneghan peng relocated to Dublin, Ireland in 2001. Its work spans a variety of scales and typologies, from urban master plans and major cultural facilities to offices and bridges.

Stephen Rustow is a principal of museoplan and a professor at the Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture.
