PERSONAL STATEMENT

EDUCATION

I am a very hardworking, motivated, trustworthy person. In my academic career I have excelled in all aspects. In particular my studio projects have always been top or close to top of the class. This time in education has given me confidence in my spatial sensibilities and the ability to come at any challenge with an open mind and creative attitude. In addition my time spent travelling has given me invaluable first hand experience of great works of architecture.

CHURCH OF REASON

Monastery//Stonehouse,Waterford

Year: 2011

The church of reason is a term mentioned in Zen and the art of Motorcycle maintenance by Robert M. Pirsig. It describes the part of university life that is the desire for understanding and true learning, as opposed to the physical university building. The design brief I created for my self became the creation of a place focused on the achievement of truth through reasoned debate. The project is located on an isolated stretch of the river Suir. It is designed like a monastery but with the purpose of facilitating reasoned discussion and debate, rather than worship. The layout of the building is guided by a daily schedule based on that of Dominican monks. Designs cues were taken from the Novy Dvur Monastery by John Pawson, with the hope of the creation of a “beautiful silence� as mentioned by Peter Zumthor with regard the design of his Klaus field chapel.

HOME, SHOP, STREET, SHORE Appartment Complex//Youghal,Cork

Year: 2010

T

his design creates a new centre to the town of Youghal in south west Ireland, through a mixed development of

residential and commercial spaces. The character of the new structure remains sensitve to the history and scale of Youghal. This is donethrough the use of materials and attention to existing site characteristics; such as the creation of a much needed connection from the main street to the sea and the reintroduction of the town market on it’s traditional site from the 1800’s. The connection between private and public space is also explored. A raised semi-public plaza gives access to the townhouses and appartments while overlooking the Public market. The dinning area of the apartments face each other and the cafe beneath them, while each appartment contains a reading nook which connects visually with the reading space of the bookstore beneath them.

The position of the site allowed for a connection between the main street and the sea Part of the old town wall in the centre of the site caused me to break the connection in 2; one through a plaza, the other through a department store. The wall becomes the connection betwen the two. The fine grain of Youghals main street to the west of the site called for a different level of density to that of the east. By using the adjacent vacant site it was possible to frame a view to the sea without it being blocked by the town wall

RE-CASTLE

Museum//Dungarvanl,Cork

Year: 2008

Based within castle walls of the town of Dungarvan, the

design of this museum maintains the castle keep as the central focus of the new development. Repecting the ruins the new keep uses exisiting openings in the wall as openings into the new structure. Building within the keep allowed for the remaining space within the walls to be converted into a public space, something Dungarvan had been lacking. The proposal included separating the non-essential functions of the museum; such as the cafe, gift shop and tourist information into separate small structures along the quayside. Thus continuing an existing walk which now culminates in a town park.


POINT

of

CONSTRICTION

Student centre//WIT Campus,Waterford

Year: 2010

This design for a new student centre for the Waterford

Institute of technology’s campus is based around the idea of bringing students together by the creation of a point of constriction between two structures on a new circulation pathway through the campus. The services inside the two structures have been seperated to provide an administration centre and a larger structure containing the bar, games room, cafe, events area and lecture theatre. A number of these rooms open onto the events area to cater for events such as concerts as a way of creating income for the college. The positioning of the building on campus serves a number of functions. It becomes the new public face to WIT, blocking out the unsightly ‘69 building while also providing a barrier to the wind for students travelling across the campus.

DESIGN CHARET TE NO.1 Stage set

Year: 2011

In this design charrette we were given the task of extracting the

main theme for the play Oedipus by Sophicles and creating a stage set which is an expression of the theme we had settled on. After reading through the play I took the theme to be Oedipus’s blind trust in his virtues. The cost of which is in his faults, as they become more and more obvious, bring the image he has of himself crumbling down. There are a number of diferent ways that the stage I designed tie in with this theme. The main feature is the cube, one of the prefect forms according to the greeks, which is raised up centre stage. Each time Oedipus ignores the direction his faults are taking him, the scaffolding holding up this ideal image of himself becomes weakend. The enormous mass of the cube above him also adds tension, speaking of unseen misfortune. As does the tranlucent front of the palace behind him, behind which a light gets brighter throughout the play, fortelling the disasterous consequences of his chosen path. (Above) Early concept sketch

DESIGN CHARET TE NO.2 Stage set moved to site

Year: 2011

The objective of this charette was to take the existing theme as

discovered in Charette 1 and move it to a location, making necessary adjustments to the stage set fitting to it’s new location. The theme of blind belief and ignorance of dangers seemed already abundant in one location in particular; Irelands newly formed ghost estates. The developers greed for money struck a parallel with Oedipus’s greed for knowledge. Both falling from grace as obvious problems (An over abundance of housing or being your wifes son) eventually force themselves into the limelight. This design involves leading the audience through the ghost estate, manipulating the lighting in the abandoned houses to create atmosphere. The site of an unfinished house becomes the stage set. Batons and plastic sheeting give the impression that the house is in construction. Through use of lighting and smoke this sheeting is turned into flames. As the whole venture of the celtic tiger goes up in smoke.


Thesis

Drawing in the creation of architecture

Year: 2012

My thesis was a exploration into the use of freehand drawing

in architecture given the rise of the computer at the dawn of the 21st century. The argument made is on one side a call for vagueness, espousing the danger inherent in the crisp lines of a computer drawing, which can hide from you parts of the design which still need to be worked on. This can make the mental image seem complete before it has been fully realised. In light of this sketching styles were looked into which help the user intuitivly search for solutions. Allowing for the give and take of information through the sketch process. There was also a study done of the main styles of drawing; section, perspective, axonometric and plan. In the words of Raphael Moneo “Each type of drawing has it’s specific use, because each drawing type portrays its own specific vision of a building.” The idea being that a knowledge of the strenghts of each will allow for clearer communications of ideas and more control over the design process. Lastly there was a look into the importance of the personal sketch book.


Thesis//Design Stage School of product design//Dublin

Year: 2012

The design stage of my thesis involved the creation of a school of product design on the south bank of the river Liffey in Dublin. The sight is located across from the unsightly IFSC building with the historical custom house to the left and the newly renovated CHQ building to the right. The abstraction of those 2 views was the main design driver behind the project. The main stairwell cuts through a light industrial structural grid of 7.5 x 7.5 meters, connecting a public lobby below to a gallery/ crit area above. This circulation space becomes an informal learning area for students to meet and exchange ideas. The design process undertaken was exclusively done through the medium of drawing; taking cues from sketching processes and ideas discovered in the previous semester. Lessons learned through this more practical period of design have been in regards the physical model and its enormous benefit in helping the designer to push designs forward and grapple with complex briefs more efficiently.

Positioned by the water the site is located on a street corner.

The side by the church is pulled back to create a quiet outdoor space.

The built space is divided up into larger open spaces by the street and smaller cellular spaces on the quieter side.

Plan lines projected from the surrounding area affects the geometry of the stairs.

This shifted geometry takes advantage of the major vies on site for the stairs, drawing room and gallery.
