UCD School of Architecture

University student exhibitions; workshops & studio teaching

I have co-organised two public exhibition of student work in Chapelizod, Co. Dublin in 2011 and Rush, Co. Dublin in 2012, to disseminate student work to the wider community, particularly in areas where the students were proposing design projects and interventions. In Chapelizod a public meeting with local residents and stakeholders was organised to allow the students to present their survey and design work outside of the traditional university context, enabling them to develop their communication skills and gain exposure to the many concerns of local communities.

I have taught in design studio in second, third and fourth years and have co-taught a 5th year thesis design group since 2009. I have given studio lectures and have been involved in the development of briefs and studio assessment. I have also co-organised plaster and relief model making workshops as part of the school’s Inter-Media programme.

I have been a visiting critic at the Dublin School of Architecture, DIT and the Mackintosh School, Glasgow School of Art and have given studio reviews and lectures at SAUL, Limerick, Queen’s University Belfast, the UCC Centre for Architectural Education and the Dublin School of Architecture, DIT.

In my position as a part-time lecturer at the School of Architecture at University College Dublin I have developed and taught seminars to Masters students on the relationship between time and architecture, as part of the 4th Year Research and Innovation in the Designed Environment module. I have also co-taught seminars on mapping (Mapping Matters, Mapping & Morphology) and organised an exhibition of the work of the seminar at Richview Library.
