Peter Rice

Described as the James Joyce of structural engineering, Dundalk man Peter Rice helped create some of the world’s most famous buildings and redefined what an engineer can be.

Born around the corner from our studio, Rice went on to work on the Sydney Opera House, the Pompidou Centre and Lourve Pyramid in Paris.

He blurred the line between engineering and architecture, he rejected the traditional job role and followed the French and Italian interpretation and brought art into engineering.
