Andrew Clancy is an architect and an educator. Graduating from UCD in 2001, he established Clancy Moore Architects with Colm Moore in 2008. He completed his PhD by practice with RMIT in 2017.
Having previously worked in Queens University Belfast and as Visiting Professor to the Aarhus School of Architecture, he was appointed as full professor of architecture to the Kingston School of Art in 2016.
His research concerns the methods of critical practice today, and embraces the work he does and the research and pedagogic innovations he leads in academia. With a view to advancing a conversational method which embraces the full plurality of subjective, contingent and imposed limits that operate in practice, his work has led to Clancy Moore Architects being voted winner of the Young Architect of the Year in 2018, the Peter Davey Award in 2019 and receiving an AAI Downes medal.
He sees his role with the Arts Council as a means to support the full richness both of architectural practice, and in the other arts.
