Irish architecture graduates Kieran Donnellan and Paul O’ Brien have completed a public exhibition of their work for a feasibility study of DIT Bolton Street. They have been working on the study for four months and have created varying scales of intervention which exploit the full potential of the Bolton Street site and surrounds. The exhibition will continue until early May 2012.
Interventions begin on the smallest scale with a new colour and signage scheme. Part of this plan has already been implemented in the Bolton Street entrance lobby, and marks a big improvement over the previous condition. The largest scale of intervention is the highly ambitious introduction of a new ten storey library building in the existing car-park, an urban move aimed at future-proofing the site and allowing DIT the extra floor space needed to accommodate a central northside library facility.
The exhibition is on display on the stage of the main student concourse area of DIT Bolton Street alongside an accompanying exhibition to celebrate the centenary of Bolton Street. This was also prepared by Donnellan & O’Brien and features very interesting historical photographs and a display of the contemporary activities of each department of the Institute.
Constructive feedback is welcome from all parties, and will be taken on board for any work to occur during the next stage of the project. Please contact us at:
