A Space for Learning on Tour Our A Space for Learning exhibi/on showcased a unique collabora/ve project which raised public awareness of the importance of school design and provided an opportunity for young people and architects to work together on a design‐ ideas compe//on. During 2010 the IAF placed 120 architects/architecture graduates with 1500 Transi/on Year students from 90 schools across Ireland to explore, re‐think and re‐design educa/onal spaces. The brief, to create a design for “a space for learning”, encouraged a wide range of learning and crea/vity as the teams analysed exis/ng school buildings and envisioned new spaces and new uses of exis/ng spaces and structures.
Par/cipa/ng students presen/ng their exhibits to the Minister of State Ciarán Cuﬀe, who launched the exhibi/on at NCAD Gallery, Dublin
10 teams were selected through a two‐stage compe//on process to create an exhibi/on for a na/onal tour. The models, ﬁlms, drawings and installa/ons included in the exhibi/on illustrate the teams’ discoveries and ideas about architecture, social space and school design. The exhibi/on toured to 5 na/onal cultural venues: NCAD Gallery, Dublin, November 2010 – January 2011 VISUAL & Éigse Fes/val, Carlow, June – August 2011 Ormeau Baths Gallery, Belfast, September – October 2011 Triskel Arts Centre, Cork, October – November 2011 Regional Cultural Centre, Le`erkenny, February – March 2012 A Space for Learning exhibi/on launch, NCAD Gallery Dublin
Education and Engagement The Irish Architecture Founda/on developed an educa/on programme with all project partners to maximise the public engagement and educa/onal outcomes of A Space for Learning during the exhibi/on tour. The programme of 60 events included talks, workshops, guided tours, teachers’ evenings, student seminars and a symposium.

Education and Engagement The IAF partnered with educa/on curators when possible at each venue to increase audience and developed programmes for 2nd level and 3rd level schools to discuss the exhibi/on and its content cri/cally. Fourteen educa/on events were held to accompany the exhibi/on.
Curating Architecture Symposium was organised by the Irish Architecture Founda/on, the School of Architecture UCD and Art in the Contemporary World NCAD, as part of the Dublin launch of of de Blacam and Meagher. Using the exhibi/on as a star/ng point, a na/onal and interna/onal panel of curators, ar/sts and architects, was invited to re‐examine the challenges of deﬁning architectural representa/on and exhibi/on, and to propose new direc/ons and possibili/es for cura/ng within the prac/ce of architecture and art itself. Speakers included Moritz Küng, curator and Tina Di Carlo, a writer and curator living in London and Berlin, formerly curator of architecture and design at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. 14
Of Books and Buildings was an educa/on programme for young people suppor/ng the exhibi/on of de Blacam and Meagher. Families and children were invited to explore the themes of the exhibi/on through a series of free crea/ve workshops and ac/vi/es. All events were speciﬁcally designed with young people in mind and led by an experienced team of architects and ar/sts.
Belfast Sketching Tour Presented by the Irish Architecture Founda/on, Ormeau Baths Gallery and PLACE the tour began with a talk about de Blacam and Meagher’s drawings in the exhibi/on space with curators Cian Deegan and Alice Casey. Michael Doherty, a Belfast based architect, took the group of 18 people out on an inspiring and informa/ve sketching tour of Belfast.
Limerick Sketching Tour Walk and sketching tour of Limerick inspired by the exhibi/on of de Blacam and Meagher. Limerick architects Maria Donoghue and James Corbe` led the sketching tour of historic and contemporary buildings and spaces including Pery Square, The Crescent and the Milk Market. 15
Redrawing Dublin: IAF Web & Street Project To celebrate the launch of Redrawing Dublin, a book by Paul Kearns and Mos Ruimy, the IAF embarked on an exci/ng web and street project and we asked our audience to par/cipate. The book that inspired the audience poll, Redrawing Dublin, is about city making. Through the IAF poll and discussion forum, the public had the opportunity to reveal the real truth about how Dublin City is designed and func/ons from their perspec/ve. Each week we asked one ques/on in our online poll, related to the provoca/ve and engaging themes revealed in the book. For the ﬁnale, the 10 week web project moved onto the streets in March 2011. Sponsored by JC Decaux, metropoles in the city contained snapshots from the book with the results of the IAF web poll. The on‐street exhibi/on challenged policy makers and ci/zens to confront Dublin’s urban contradic/ons, to see and tell it as it is, not as it is imagined or believed to be.
Urban Party To celebrate our 10‐week on‐line poll discussion on Dublin City and to launch our 1‐month long on‐street poster campaign, the IAF and Redrawing Dublin organised the Urban Party at The Complex, Smithﬁeld Square in Dublin in March 2011.

The Urban Party invited diverse and acclaimed ‘Dublin Voices’ to speak for just 3 minutes each on their vision for our city, giving fast moving and rota/ng urban perspec/ves on the future of Dublin. An economically vibrant, socially inclusive and culturally dynamic city ma`ers to the future success of Ireland. At a challenging /me for our city and country, the Urban Party provided an opportune plaiorm or poli/cal soapbox to lobby our new government on the way forward for Dublin. The speakers included: Ivana Bacik, Senator; Dylan Haskins, Social Entrepreneur; Alan Mee, Urban Agenda; Vanessa Fielding, The Complex; Kieran Rose, Planner; Maxim Laroussi, Architecture Republic; Gerry Godley, Musician; Elaine Byrne, Journalist; Jay Bourke, Entrepreneur; Michael McDermot, Le Cool Dublin; Dick Gleeson, City Planner; Leanne Caulﬁed, Second Level Student’s Union; Garre` Pitcher, Indigo & Cloth; Paul Keogh, RIAI; Aaron Copeland, Upstart; Mick Wilson, Gradcam; Sandra O’Connell, Editor; Dermot Lacey, Councillor; Ali Grehan, City Architect; Constan/n Gurdgiev, Economist. 17
The Fourth Wall The Irish Architecture Founda/on in partnership with the Irish Film Ins/tute presented The Fourth Wall, a season of ﬁlm and architecture, which ran at the IFI in Dublin in May 2011. Curated by Nathalie Weadick, Director of the Irish Architecture Founda/on, and Samantha Mar/n‐ McAuliﬀe, UCD School of Architecture, this collabora/on explored and illuminated the point of encounter between architecture and the moving image. The Fourth Wall revealed architecture as both protagonist and ac/ve par/cipant within the fabric of ﬁlmmaking. It also harnessed the immersive and narra/ve capabili/es of ﬁlm. Many of the ﬁlms in this series have never before been shown in Ireland.

The A Space for Learning book has won its printers – Plus Print – the Irish Small Printer of the Year Award 2011.
Arts Tonight, Radio 1, won a silver PPI award for their feature on Sam Stephenson for the IAF’s Open House Dublin event. (Phonographic Performance Ireland Radio Awards 2011) A Space for Learning is an education project for architects and secondary school students to challenge current thinking on school design. It is initiated and delivered by the Irish Architecture Foundation (IAF), a publicly funded cultural organisation which was set up to communicate the value of architecture to a broad public. The IAF placed 120 architects/architecture graduates with 1500 Transition Year students across Ireland during 2010. Architect/ student teams collaborated to design A Space for Learning for an ideas competition.
Workshops led by architects/graduates took place during January – March 2010. Students acquired many new skills though activities including walking tours & discussions, surveying and map-making, drawing and measuring, photography, film & animation, modelmaking & computer-aided design. The brief allowed teams to respond to the concept A Space for Learning in any way that was relevant to their needs and aspirations.
The quasi-real nature of the project allowed students to engage with real-world issues, dealing with social, ecological and economical aspects of sustainability. For example many teams specifically prioritised sustainability in their design choices. Projects were based on students’ own experiences of their environment, encouraging a strong sense of ownership of the projects and an understanding of the power of good design to transform lives. The breadth of research behind each project gave students a greater awareness of issues around the built environment, their role as citizens and the value of architecture.
Architect/student teams submitted their design proposals to the IAF in April 2010. Ten winning teams were selected by a Jury and received funding to develop their design into an exhibit for a national touring exhibition. A publication recorded all the submitted projects, revealing the wealth of discoveries made about architecture, social space and school design.

A Space for Learning provided schools with an excellent participation-based education project led by architects and architectural graduates. Students’ understanding of architecture was increased by working through the design process with architects. This hands-on experience provided opportunities to develop skills, creativity and critical thinking in relation to design and the built environment.
Irish Architecture Foundation Project funded by the Department of Environment, Heritage and Local Government, the Department of Education and Skills and the Arts Council of Ireland.
Workshops: 3 Months Exhibition Tour: 15 Months
Evaluation feedback was gathered from participating students, teachers and architects through forms and interviews. The positive outcome of the project is best summarised by Thomas Campbell 16, student at Dundalk Grammar, ‘I thought architecture was just about construction. I never realised it could be so creative and about different ideas’. In future schemes we would provide training and planning sessions for architects and teachers in advance of projects.

A one-day symposium on the future of Architects-in-Schools initiatives in Ireland Friday 28th January, 9.30am–5pm πNCAD, Harry Clarke Lecture Theatre 100 Thomas Street, Dublin 8 Irish Architecture Foundation’s 2010 Architects-in-Schools project A Space for Learning placed 120 architects with 1500 students in 90 schools across Ireland, culminating in the exhibition now on at NCAD Gallery. The success of the project proves the demand from schools for similar schemes and the willingness of architects to get involved in education projects. However the project also revealed challenges and opportunities in establishing cohesive and relevant infrastructure, resources and architectural appreciation in the education system. In order to learn from this and continue Architects-in-Schools schemes we believe we must research and discuss the issues relating to the development of an inspiring and sustainable Architects-in-Schools scheme in Ireland. The aim of the symposium is to tackle these issues and produce outcomes that direct clearly the potential for Architects-in-Schools initiatives. In order to do this the IAF will bring together the individuals and organisations who potentially have a role to play in the development of future initiatives. Keynote speakers from Ireland and abroad will share their experience of a variety of existing models, to provide inspiration and examples that will inform the discussion.
