Phase I Development

Mercy College Coolock are selected to take part in Phase Two of  ‘A Space for Learning’ Competition, along with nine other schools across the country.

Students were set the task of developing a brief for the courtyard site in the centre of their school. Initial designs are tested within the 9.5 x 19.8m limits of the site.

Through discussing the specific issues in their school, students begin to design ‘a space for lunch’. The idea of a forest and clearing is explored through models. The architects role is restricted to photographing and cataloguing student work.

Work will start on site in the coming weeks.
