EMPLOYMENT HISTORY

SPaN, May 2013 - Present. I have been working on a large scale residential development with this busy New York firm and familiarising myself with working and managing at a much greater scale than previously experienced. I have quickly assumed a role of responsibility by co-ordinating work and attending weekly meetings with consultants and clients. The work has ranged from project management to landscape and furniture design and all levels in between. I have adapted quickly to working in a different construction and regulatory environment and enjoy facing the new challenges I am faced with. ODOSarchitects, June 2012 - April 2013. I returned to work with ODOS upon completing my thesis. I worked on a range of projects from design to construction stage with the firm. The scope of work included residential, hospitality and commercial at various stages of development, helping me to gain valuable and varied experience. I have developed my skills to become comfortable with designing to a construction level, having completed several successful planning applications, tender packages and construction sets. I am comfortable liasing with clients, local authorities, contractors , consultants and all other parties involved in design and construction. Further, I worked well with my team members and feel I added value and creativitiy to any project I worked on. I also handled PR and web presence for the firm who often appear in publications and websites. GRADUATE STUDENT ODOSarchitects, January 2011, Summer 2011. Worked for the firm as a student over several periods. I continued on doing some freelance work for the firm during my final year and returned to join the team after finishing my thesis. BE Architecture, Melbourne, February - May 2010. While working with this firm, I was given exposure to working with building typologies that do not exist in Ireland and really appreciated being able to contrast how design and building occurs in a climate and regulatory environment that differs to my previous experience. McCullough Mulvin Architects, November - February 2010. I worked here for three months on projects ranging from under construction to competition stage. I really enjoyed working in the office due to the personal and hands-on approach taken by the staff and directors and vastly developed my experience.

EXHIBITIONS

Shannon Airport - November 2012. After working on the airport for my final year, I was asked to exhibit my work in the main departure / arrivals hall of the airport. The exhibition ran for four weeks and is a unique opportunity to show the work on-site. Design@UL - May 2012. My thesis ‘Participation & Perception’ was chosen amongst a selection of 5 theses from SAUL that were fully exhibited in the show. VENT - October 2011. In collaboration with Edel Murphy. Exhibited in London at the Florence Hall of the RIBA in October 2011. We were part of the VENT exhibition and won best international entry after being shortlisted. LSAD - April 2011. Took part in a photographic exhibition in the Limerick School of Art and Design in April 2011 on the theme of boundary and coast.

Please find enclosed examples of my work in a professional and academic capacity. I have a strong interest in digital media and emerging software as a tool to aid the design process. This is coupled with a desire to also work in the analogue realm of modelmaking and hand sketching as I believe these to be highly important tools in the the design process.

Grafton Architects, Autumn 2009. I was involved at the competition stage of a project for a lecture/research building in the University of Toulouse. Building on my studies of compact spaces from the para(site) project, I was involved with the design of the offices for the scheme. Working to a short deadline was demanding and a new experience but highly rewarding and successful. A2 Architects, January 2009. I worked here on a placement during a winter break from university. I was responsible for making a large model of a residential development and was involved with the design process for the scheme. I also dealt with suppliers and helped plan the schedule of work for the project. I was given an opportunity to use the skills gained thus far in my course and worked well with my colleagues.

A

NEW FUTURE for

SHANNON AIRPORT

SHANNON AIRPORT THESIS This project is based in Shannon Airport and uses the device of an air-cargo terminal and public park to present both a new future for the site and to allow people into the airport - allowing the public to experience this visible but removed place and enjoy the spectacle of flight.

These photos attempt to convey the atmosphere and experience of the boundary of the airport system. At this zone a continuous line wraps around the site and presents a clashing of systems; airport and landscape it sits within. At points the boundary becomes thick and a building introduces an interstitial space between landside and airside. The exploration of this condition sets up the project and was the subject of initial investigations at the beginning of the year.

The above is a photo of the final model for the project. The new piece of infrastructure plugs into the boundary and introduces a new experiential condition: being inside the system but still safely removed from its processes. It presents a convolution of the existing linear condition of the boundary into a loop and is located adjacent to the Shannon Free Zone industrial park, re-purposing this existing complex also.

The context of the airport grows from a local hinterland to a much larger geographical area due to the nature or how people transit today and the evolved transport systems that facilitate this movement. People can walk, drive, fly or sail to the site in a few minutes or hours; the context is as much the motorway system as the local landscape. Unknown future uses of the site can be provided for by designing a system that can be plugged into and dimensioned in such a way that it can adapt and evolve. The existing complexities of the boundary can be a reference by which you mediate between landscape and airside, blurring the definition between parallelplace and landscape.

The project thus becomes the infrastructural intervention of a cargo terminal, this being the device by which people can safely access the interior public park. From here, the public can enjoy moments of proximity with the spectacle of flight and workings of the airport. It is an attempt to grasp and project the premise of this thesis into design and the interpretation of parallel-place. Shannon Airport is a unique and intriguing site - the original test bed of modernism in Ireland.

THE PROJECT

This project is based in Shannon Airport and uses the device of an air-cargo terminal and public park to present both a new future for the site and to allow people into the airport - allowing the public to experience this visible but removed place and enjoy the spectacle of flight.

These photos attempt to convey the atmosphere and experience of the boundary of the airport system. At this zone a continuous line wraps around the site and presents a clashing of systems; airport and landscape it sits within. At points the boundary becomes thick and a building introduces an interstitial space between landside and airside. The exploration of this condition sets up the project and was the subject of initial investigations at the beginning of the year.

The new piece of infrastructure plugs into the boundary and introduces a new experiential condition: being inside the system but still safely removed from its processes. It presents a convolution of the existing linear condition of the boundary into a loop and is located adjacent to the Shannon Free Zone industrial park, re-purposing this existing complex also.

Functioning runway system


THE EXPERIENCE

The surplus capacity of the systems of the airport introduces the possibility of other processes and functions being provided. Ireland as an island nation imports mosts goods and food through air or sea, sending vessels back empty or with less product. The climate of the area is temperate without major swings in temperature, and the relatively low residential density in the region means that the site could intensify its operations on a 24 hour schedule. These conditions and the under-use of the airport in terms of flight schedules means that the addition and expansion of cargo storage and transport facilities is a viable proposition for a new function to introduce to the airport. However, this process might grow or contract in time. What if you designed an infrastructure that allowed this fluctuation - or the development other uses or functions - to occur over time?


The photomontage below is an attempt to begin to describe the various experiences of the boundary of the airport. This line stretches around the entire perimeter of the site, uninterrupted, and is at times almost invisible, at times so strongly defined that it almost becomes a place in itself. What if you could inhabit the boundary?What if the intervention kept the existing boundary intact but added a layer onto the site which convolutes the existing situation? The journey into the wide perspective of the park to enjoy the spectacle of flight is preceded by an unexpected encountering of the inner workings of the airport - an interlacing of public route and the workings of an air cargo terminal. The drawing to the right is part line, part image describing the cargo system interface with the boundary. A perspective provides a glimpse of how visually engaging the system would be that becomes a diagrammatic plan explaining how the cargo moves from airside to landside. This is the drive in movie for parallel-place, presenting what is usually hidden and removed from the airport experience.


THE AIRPORT BOUNDARY

Throughout the year I explored the airport in its relationship (if any) to the landscape it sits in, and specifically the boundary of the site as something that mediates between landscape and airside. As with any airport, the airside / landside boundary is a strongly defined line. The interior space and workings of the airport can be seen and glimpsed through the fence which stretches around the entire airport perimeter, but this distanced view is the only participation that can take place between spectator and site. At points the boundary of the airport becomes thick and the line of landscape / airport blurred. Aerospace hangars, the passenger terminal and the industrial estate become spatial systems that oscillate between ‘airport’ place and ‘public’ place. Planes taxi off the runway and into large hangars where workers surround them in scaffolding and repair / maintain / paint the aircraft. The inner workings of these hangars are extremely interesting, but are all clad in the typology of industrial shed which offer no information as to the interior activities. The boundary line cuts through existing field patterns, old roads become cul-de-sacs and the geometries that the airport require are always given priority over the conditions of the landscape that surrounds it . At specific points around the site (determined by access, proximity and vantage to runways) plane spotters enjoy both the spectacle of flight and the variety of air traffic that frequent the airport. These points, spatially, are either constructed car parks or dirt tracks that are reclaimed from vegetation to provide more private or privileged viewing spots. What if these ‘boundary-events’ clashed and overlapped? What if you convoluted the boundary of the airport with a device that brought the public into the interior of the airport system? What if you exposed the usually-hidden workings of the airport? What if all of this was effected by the development of a new infrastructure that could house new activities for the airport?


THE GRID AND AIRPORT SYSTEM

The main geometries of the project are extensions of those found in the Shannon Free Zone and the underlying drainage grid; revealed in the parks as a ground surface treatment amongst the grassland. At three points the project ‘plugs’ into the boundary; on an existing concrete raft, a disused taxiway andwhere a drainage culvert emerges from underground. The rationality of the airport geometries are source of reference for the diagrammatic nature of the site plan.

THE PARK AND LOOP SYSTEM The essence of the project is shown below. Safely landed in the interior parkland, you are immersed within the airport system and are provided a vantage point to watch planes take off, play football, take shelter, run and meander through the site. The grass is cut several times a week to deter birds and thus provides a perfect ground for amenities. The undulating structure provides podium, theatre, shelter , storage and access. The first concert is scheduled to take place this summer. The loop diagram to the right explains the interlacing of cargo system and public infilitration through and around the airport. The device does not provide a destination, rather a series of points along a circulation route to experience the airport and enjoy the parkland. The ne w layer of infrastructure for Shannon airport provides an experience and setting to feed off and respond to. Neither ‘good’ nor ‘bad’, the presumption is to allow the use and adaptation to fluctuate over time.

YEAR 4 INHABITED WALL, INIS MEAIN A project located by the old pier on Inis Meรกin that deals with permanence and movement. Large scale conceptual coupled with extremely small scale function. An inhabited wall that defines the already existing functions that occur on the site; currach storage / preparation and changing for swimmers. The project responds on a larger scale to the route that begins along the pier and continues to become the main vein through the island, along which a ribbon of housing and commerce are located. The field pattern of drystone walls offer a series of recessed and through spaces, where you pause to perform a function and continue on again. This project provides another pause along this route and provides spaces to prepare oneself for interacting with the water and coast. The materiality of rough, boardmarked concrete reflects the heavy and evolved character of the old pier. A series of walls at 450, 1500 and 2000 mm high are formed that provide varying degrees of privacy and protection from the elements and also provide working surfaces and storage. The project also raises the question of how structure exists when not in use or uninhabited. Like the monolithic structures of the Atlantic Wall in Normandy and elsewhere, these crafted manmade walls will age and start to become part of the coast itself.

HOUSE IN GIRONA, SPAIN RO

W

This concept for this house in Spain responded to the climactic requirements of its environment. At times introspective and at times porous, the square plan is punctured by several voids bringing channels of light down through the building. The first floor runs out into the embankment it is built against to provide an indoor / outdoor pool and cinema / dining area. The facade of irregular fins helps to provide shade to the accommodation and defines a strong rhythm to the form set amongst the tall trees which exist on the site.

for this project by the sea in south Dublin. Located adjacent to a protected eighteenth century dwelling and within the ruins of an existing coach house, this house is delicately respectful of its context while still being unashamedly contemporary. The use of brick and perforated brick screens provides a mute facade that still allows light into the plan. Courtyards and voids within I the plan provide light and outdoor spaces and the experience of the dwelling is thought of as a secret garden; moments of light and excitement within an outwardly calm facade. 5

As the client is the contractor for the project, I had to fulfill a unique role of designing to a tender and construction stage at the same time and managing the project between the client and consultants.

The brief for this project was to modernise and extend this mid-terrace Victorian dwelling in the south city centre. A new kitchen and living area on the ground floor is wrapped around an outdoor pool / courtyard. This device also brings light into the existing rooms of the house. Link passages between old and new free up the plan and provide brightly-lit spaces which can adapt to contemporary living.

The rear facade is conceived as an array of panels set within a timber frame. Opaque glass provides diffused light to the kitchen counter and a large slider opens up the threshold to the outside. A stone panel provides some privacy to the more informal area and completes the composition. To the first floor a timber lined window relates to below with a shadow gap surround used to visually lift the opening from the render facade.

TWO STOREY EXTENSION, DUBLIN This residential project received a grant of planning before I worked with ODOS . The project was stalled due to the clients wishes and only came to tender stage recently. The project was subject to several conditions by the planning authority which had to be designed into the project at tender stage. We wished to express the rear facade as a framed composition at first floor level, and one of the planning conditions (no glazing was allowed below 1m high at first floor level) had to be designed in also. We developed a built in piece of furniture to the rear facade to fulfill this condition and worked with the parapets and glazing to achieve a consistent frame around the first floor facade.

built in furniture

The use of steel angles and timber construction helped us to achieve this visual , and by allowing the glazing to run past the ceiling level have visually refined the appearance of the rear facade to the garden. Timber fins are inlayed to the frame which hide opening glazed sections and provide shading and privacy to the facade. ODOSarchitects 2013
