DUBLIN ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING RESEARCH CENTRE B.ARCH THESIS The aim of the project was to create an architecture that facilitates the investigation of new design and construction methodologies that allow architecture to evolve with contextual requirements in a sustainable manner. The brief calls for a series of spaces for design, prototyping, production, and exportation. The site’s boundary conditions are re-evaluated through the creation of green links between the currently excluded communities of East wall, Spencer Dock, and the greater Dublin area. The ecologically barren landscape surrounding the site will be developed into public parkland and, combined with new green infrastructure, will symbiotically merge with the Dublin Additive Manufacturing Research Centre creating a naturally rich yet highly technical typology that attempts to blur the boundary between nature and architecture.

2

All processes utilized in the Dublin Additive Manufacturing Research Centre’s realization will be based on a techno-natural symbiosis with an emphasis on increasing sustainability in the architectural process. This is to be made possible with emergent construction methods researched and developed during my semester 1 advanced design studio coursework. Initially the architectural process will utilize additive manufacturing (fused deposition modeled) technologies. As new, more suitable processes are developed in-house, they will replace less efficient methods in an evolutive fashion. Furthermore, as new technologies will have differing programmatic and spatial requirements, the ability to develop spatially to accommodate these technologies is not merely an objective, but vital component to the centre’s survival.

ARCHITECTURAL RESEARCH LABORATORY B.ARCH THESIS RESEARCH

After observing a fragmented residentialindustrial landscape, the inclusion of permeable community space was identified as a key aspect of the architectural investigation. To achieve this, the concept of intermediate space became an important programmatic generator and is addressed as the dualistic merging of high-tech research center with a permeable community education hub. Both elements are connected by a central walkway that twists and cuts vertically through the atrium space between the two building wings, a reaction to the four anti-

6

monumental circulation routes in-situ in the traditional, rigid, architecture. The skin is a parametrically controlled three dimensional Voronoi pattern arranged in accordance with the spatial, programmatic, and environmental constraints. The form is a result of seating, storage, water collection, and structural inputs. This system can be additively manufactured from recyclable bio-plastics resulting in a cradle-to-cradle architectural system.

DUBLIN SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE GATEHOUSE UNDERGRADUATE PROJECT

The brief of this project calls for a new critique and exhibition space for the Dublin School of Architecture on the Dublin Institute of Technology’s Linenhall campus. With much of the existing on site infrastructure protected from demolition or major alteration, only minor changes are made to the main school building. Currently, the building’s circulation is counter-intuitive, with awkward circulation routes at ground floor level. This is addressed by the relocation of main circulation routes within the building

8

with integrated exhibition spaces dotted along main routes to lead people through the building and it’s various departments. Attention is then shifted to a small administration building located at the campus entrance. This building is obsolete in layout and function, and is therefore demolished and replaced with a multi-functional “gatehouse”. The form of this gatehouse is dictated by internal space requirements and tight site spatial constraints, resulting in a

tower which, once clear of the existing built environment, expands to house a large exhibition space. This exhibition space provides generous views over Dublin city and the Dublin Institute of Technology’s Bolton Street campus, the original home of the Dublin School of Architecture. The tower occupies a vital location on campus in terms of security, and therefore at ground level houses a security desk to combat the theft issues which are currently a source of concern for the campus. The tower also contains

an office for the head of school. The circulation route within houses several informal social spaces designed to provide respite from the schools busy activities and provide serendipitous opportunities for interaction between students. This mixing of function is inspired by Kisho Kurikawa’s writings on “intermediate space” in The Philosophy of Symbiosis, an idea that became a staple of my thesis research.

ARDS FOREST PAVILION POSTGRADUATE GROUP COMPETITION ENTRY

This intervention in Ards Forest Park, Creeslough hopes to provide both locals and tourists the opportunity to absorb and observe this dramatic and ancient setting. The walkers’ shelter, frames views across the surrounding landscape while also accommodating a tranquil, meditative rest area. The design is laid out in a cross form, with two main entrances and two main viewing points. In the centre of this arrangement the structure opens to provide a calm, reflective, seating space, which frames the forest canopy and floor. The installation’s honest expressive exterior structure contrasts greatly with the interior space, which is wrapped in a timber cladding. The soft interior space acts as a restful retreat for walkers. An alternative location to the four original sites has been chosen for this design. This

10

installation is strategically positioned on a slope, between a main public access route and a nature trail, adjacent to site three. The advantages of this new discovered location are twofold. Primarily, the upper part of this site captures inspirational views of the Donegal landscape, looking out towards the sea and also back towards the bay and sandy dunes. This design focuses on, and celebrates these perspectives. Secondly, the two trails, which pass by the installation, offer visitors a double experience. The lower path grants views and access to the under croft of this exciting, expressive timber structure, while the upper path provides visitors the opportunity to enter into the structure.
