A new research project to explore public awareness of and participation in architecture and the built environment in Ireland and has been launched.
Irish architects Sheila O'Donnell and John Tuomey, who are both graduates and staff of the UCD School of Architecture, University College Dublin, have been named as the 2015 recipients of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Royal Gold Medal, the world's most prestigious architecture award. Sheila is a Studio Lecturer at the UCD School of Architecture and John is Professor of Architectural Design.
One scholarship is available to support research, at a Masters or doctoral level, in an area of existing and emerging research strength within the UCD School of Architecture with a start date of January 2015.
UCD School of Architecture's Orla Murphy will co-present a new series on RTÉ 1 beginning on Tuesday 8th July at 7pm called Building Ireland. The series will explore and explain how Ireland's great building and engineering achievements came to be, and their impact on the development of our towns and cities.
This programme consists of a four-week taught tuition period in July which includes design studio, seminars, lectures, field trips and a cultural programme.
In 2012 the UCD School of Architecture introduced a new course for advanced entry to the Masters of Architecture, to provide an opportunity to those with B.Arch (Part II accreditation) qualification or equivalent course to convert their degree to a Masters level designation. Students will join the second year of the M.Arch programme, and will be awarded up to 30 credits of Recognised Prior Learning. The main requirement will be to complete a 30-credit thesis, although additional modules, such as dissertation, may be required in some cases.
