A Space For Learning
The NCAD Gallery is pleased to present ‘A space for Learning’, an exhibition by the Irish Architecture Foundation, opening at the NCAD Gallery on November 5 and running until January 29, 2011. Earlier in 2010, 120 architects, 1,500 students and 90 schools all took part in a competition in which architects and transition year students worked together to imagine their ideal educational space. This exhibition showcases the top ten designs from the competition.
Ten winning architect-student teams from counties Cavan, Limerick, Louth, Cork and Dublin have created films, installations, models and drawings to illustrate their ideas about learning spaces and environments, which will tour to various locations around Ireland, beginning with the NCAD Gallery, located at the National College of Art and Design, Dublin.
Funded by the Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government with additional funding from the Department of Education and Skills, this exhibition will showcase a unique collaborative project, created by the Irish Architecture Foundation (IAF), to raise public awareness of the importance of school design.
The exhibition of A Space for Learning is accompanied by an education programme, which includes school visits, teacher training on incorporating architecture into the classroom, NCAD student events, public lectures and lunchtime talks by the participating architects.
