BSc(Arch), MArch UCD

Donn Holohan is an architect, designer and maker based in Hong Kong and Ireland. A founding partner of superposition, and assistant lecturer at HKU, his work is primarily based on the potentials of emerging technology – both as they relate to the practice of architecture, and to the question of social and environmental sustainability.

Over the past number of years, he has worked in rural China with local craftspeople, governments and NGOs on projects that vary in scale from products to small-scale experimental structures and architecture, including Sun Room and The Wind and Rain Bridge – a reciprocal interlocking timber structure which draws on the long tradition of wooden buildings native to the region, designed to be constructed without the use of mechanical fasteners.
