This compact book chronicles the history, design concept, design development, engineering, fabrication and erection of Ireland’s new monument in O’Connell Street, Dublin. It includes a 22min DVD that captures the emotions involved in its creation – from the jury stage, through the development, and to the final erection of The Spire in front of more than 5,000 Dubliners and RTE’s live TV coverage.
