SELECTED PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE CORK CITY COUNCIL ARCHITECT’S DEPARTMENT

Background Projects I have worked on in Cork City Council Architect’s Department consisted of housing projects, housing design, planning, urban design, detailed working drawings and 3D visualisation. The housing projects include infill schemes and larger brown-field schemes.

Kilmore Road Social Housing The project I have chosen to highlight is phase one of the North-side regeneration in Knocknaheeney, Cork City. This project consists of 23 Housing units divided between two terraces and two house types - two storey and three storey. My responsibilities included production of working details, working drawings and assembly drawings, 3D visualisations and animation. The following pages contain examples of my involvement. The houses are detailed to the latest building regulations Part L. Utilising Solar Energy, highly efficient boilers, wood pellet stoves and well constructed details we achieved an A3 BER rating.

SELECTED COMPETITIONS CHOSEN COMPETITION ENTRIES FROM MY SPARE TIME

Ards Forest Park Pavilion Entry 2014 The proposed structure straddles the divide between the manicured lawn and the rough, wild forest, in order to create an intermediate duo of spaces looking forward into the dark forest and back toward the beach across the open lawn. The pavilion celebrates the journey of park visitors into the forest and back in time. The stairs leads up to viewing platforms, one overlooks the lawn and beach beyond, the other is set into the tree tops. These stairs are linked by a landing, which also accommodates circulation at the lower level. The stairs are conceived as an articulation of the duality of the site, one is solid and encloses a space, contrasted against this is it’s lightweight twin, consisting of an array of minimal timber columns supporting the stairs

Together they form an implied cube. The orange space enclosed by the solid stairs represents the culture and the domain of man within the landscape. While the rest of the structure is untreated larch allowed to weather to a silvery grey, the plywood lining this nook is painted orange each spring. This vivid treatment of the enclosure alludes to civilization and the resistance of aging typical of the edifices we erect in the landscape. The plans and elevations are porous, allowing for glimpses of the landscape and the infiltration of flora and fauna underneath the stairs. This results in a sustainable, multifunctional use of the site and respect for the sites ecological functions. The light weight stairway accommodates an existing Rowan tree on the site. We see the pavilion as a composite of the existing qualities of the site and our need for play, exploration and

Semester 10 - Thesis

ORATORY & DEMOCRACY A Courthouse for Cork City

Brief

Concept

My 5th year thesis asked the question:

The concept focused on conveying the principles of the Justice system to the citizens of the city. The system is after all merely a construct of human imagination, the courthouse is the physical representation of that. The communicative power of the setting for oratory was a conclusion of my thesis therefore it was very important this be conveyed, especially the principle of transparency. This transparency can be seen everywhere in the building highlighting the circulation, where all parties can be seen but never meet until the courtroom.

‘How do we create space for democratic oratory?’ Through research I formed the basis and brief to put my findings in to practice. The building I choose to design to test my thesis findings was a courthouse, sited in Cork.

The building aims to settle in the existing urban grain while simultaneously conveying its civic nature. A major challenge was to incorporate an existing 18th century red brick building on the site. As part of conveying the elusive nature of the concept of the judicial syatem a stream that can be seen but not accessed flows through the building.

STUDY OF AUDITORIUM A study of the Kursaal Auditorium facade

Brief

Background to the building

As part of our Building Technology module, the brief asked for an in-depth study of a building which was notable for its double skin facade.

The chosen building was Kursaal Auditorium in Northern Spain by Rafael Moneo.

Through contacting the glass manufacturers, the architects and building 1:1 models a comprehensive understanding of the facade was established.

The architect faced several challenges with the facade including strong sunshine, proximity to the sea shore and the presence on one side of a motorway. He successfully used a double skin facade to solve issues arising from these challenges.

A ROWING CENTRE A Rowing centre on the banks of the Suir

Brief

Concept

The brief called for a public building of the students’ choice to be situated on the banks of the River Suir just outside the small village of Fiddown, Co. Kilkenny.

To create a space that functioned not only as a rowing centre but also a visitor centre for rowing. I envisaged a brave building with a materiality that echoed its natural surroundings which would communicate the internal activity to the outside world

I choose to design a rowing centre and public viewing stand as the river was ideal at this point for rowing races.

The main space is triple height, anchored by a natural stone north wall and maintained at 18 degrees celsius. Contained in this space are the two spaces that are their own envelopes and kept at 22degrees celsius. The access ramps ensure a pleasurable interaction for the occupants and the public passing through the village. In retrospect, I am happy with the quality spaces that I created, however I now question the scale and my application of such a high tech facade to an essentially rural setting.

DRAWING TO MAKE Selected technical drawings and field experience

Architectural Technology

Steel Fabrication

As well as highlighting some practical experience, the following pages contain examples of working drawings form my third year of Architectural Technology (Cork Institute of Technology 2007, Grade 1.1).

As shown on my CV (Page 2) I have substantial experience of steel fabrication. and general building.

Each student received a competition entry from the RIAI Competition for a Cultural Centre in Carlow Town (2006). From the sketch design I received I then went through the entire process that would have happened if the building was being constructed. This included a conservation study, applying for planning, fire certs, and creating a full set of working drawings.

This includes Gas cutting with Acetylene/ Oxygen torch, welding, prototyping, all stages of production and erection. The photograophs illustrating this also include a 250M X 50M factory for Eden Precast in Kilkenny, for which I was involved in every stage. The steel for this came in to our yard second-hand from The Channel Tunnel works in the English Channel. We then engineered it to form the factory building shown in the pictures.

Semester 6

YOUTH ORCHESTRA I A space for the youth of Cahir to belong

Brief

Concept

The brief for this project was a ‘wellness’ space for particular group of people. I aimed to provide the young people of Cahir with a facility that promoted self improvement, social cohesion and foster a culture of learning through fun.

Situated adjacent to the river and in the Cahir castle park, the building consists of a porous façade clad in timber, housing two separate buildings – a performance space and a two storey recreational area.

I was inspired by The Venezuelan Youth Orchestra and the El Sistema method of teaching young people classical music, El Sistema’ achieves the aims outlined above through music. I created a space for a young people to practice music and also to simply ‘hang out’ with their friends. Important in this design was to create a place for fun and to illicit a sense of belonging.

The façade is cedar while the two individual buildings are clad in contrasting sycamore. Trees grow up through the floor and complement the materials used in this entirely sustainable project. Echoing the neighbouring castle which is built on a rock plinth, the youth orchestra building is raised up 3m and accessed through a retractable stairs, which adds to the sense of fun and ownership the young people have over their building.

TIPPERARY]

Semester 6

YOUTH ORCHESTRA II A space for the youth of Cahir to belong

Brief

Active Facade Design

On a different (this time urban and street fronting) site, located on Cahirs’ main thorughfare, apply the spatial and design lessons learned in part one. In essence the challenge was to effectively work a building in to the urban fabric of Cahir, Co. Tipperary.

Behind the glass facade lies an arrangement of moveable coloured pipes of various lenghts. Children have access to walkways where they can hit the pipes to use them as an instrument (each colour produces a different note) and also move them as they desire. This creates an interactive facade for the town, full of its young people.

Concept The main youth orchestra performance space protrudes through the glass facade and angles towards the square in the Town Square. The performance space opens to the outside so that classical music fills the streets. Inside the building is a large space with ‘objects’ occupying it. These ‘objects consist of a stairway, suspended private tuition rooms and a suspended library with private reading pods with views of the south facing garden. A café, open learning space and toilets occupy the ground floor.

Active Facade The facade is designed to teach young people music while also enabling the building to interact with the street. Hollow metal pipes of different thicknesses and lengths are painted different colours depending on the musical properties emitted when they are struck by the kids with a wooden stick. There are three layers of these pipes and multiple levels to stand on when playing. This means that the facade is constantly interacting with the street when the children are playing. A filigree curtain wall system sits in front of the musical facade.

My publishing work contains exmples of The Campus Times, the student newspaper of Waterford Institute of Technology which I cofounded and co-edited. I was also responsible for the design and the layout of the paper each and every issue.

As well as this I was project manager in 2008 for the annual Book of Waterford Institute of Technology’s Dept. of Architecture. This was a professional book designed, managed and designed by the students. My graphic design work includes posters and logos for my own work as well as logos and posters for other organisations.

They have no reason to question in who’s foot steps they walk and why should they ask such a question, theirs is the future and they have a right to that future. Some may have noticed the worn tiles in the long corridors and wondered whose feet wore those tiles, but they would have no reason to know that while they have a bright future and their hopes and dreams are about to be realised it is a sad fact that the feet that wore those tiles were women whose hopes and dreams of a future were stolen and even their very right to freedom denied. It is ironic that the building that once housed a Magdalene Laundry, where the rule of law did not run, now houses a School of Law and the halls ring with the sounds of the UN Charter of fundamental human rights and the rooms ring with concepts of habeas corpus and the golden thread of innocent until proven guilty.

Robin Murphy evaluates an issue of great importance to students - the governments policies aimed at creating the much talked about “Smart Economy” Page 6

The Campus Times has learned this week that the 2009 Christmas Examination results will now not be released on the 2nd of February after lecturers announced the decision of the TUI to withhold the ‘green and whites’ – a large sheet containing student details and their grades - as part of an ongoing dispute over payment for correction of exams scripts.

The Campus Times understands that Waterford IT is understood to have put in place a different arrangement with the TUI, not in practise in any other college, whereby the original yearly payment would instead be paid out twice after the correction of both semester examinations. While the meaning behind the circular is not clearly understood – with the TUI claiming it means payments should be doubled and college management saying it should be paid in two halves - other colleges are understood to have split the payment in two or increased the payment by a certain amount before splitting to cover any increased workload due to semesterisation. College (Contd on page 3)

The theory behind the Magdalene Laundries was that the women would purge their sins by manual labour. The recent theft of the sign from Auschwitz Concentration camp “Arbeit macht frei”

A Magadalene Laundry in Ireland

These women should be remembered; their history should be brought out into the light of day. A simple plaque should be erected to the memory of these women. There are two reasons why the women who were hidden away and who scrubbed the dirty linen of Waterford should be remembered and the facts of their existence recognised. One, to recognise the women, for themselves, to say that they existed and what happened to them was a deep wrong. Two, that it should remind us of what happened and that it should never be allowed to happen again. Edmund Burke said, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing”. I urge the students of WIT to contribute to a fund to erect a simple plague to recognise these women and to remember them.

On the back of Geraldine Rogers article we here at The Campus Times have launched a campaign to remember the women and girls who spent time in Waterford’s Magdalene Laundry. We propose to erect a plaque or similar physical memorial on the grounds of the College Street Campus. The first step of this is fundraising. You can donate through Student’s Union offices, alternatively if you have ideas on fundraising, possible donors or what form the memorial shall take, e-mail thecampustimes@gmail. com or contact Tadhg on 085 2426224.

et’s be honest...if there’s anything the Irish can do, its moan. We are a nation of pessimistic moaners. Ah it’s raining outside. Moan. When it’s too hot outside, we moan. We’re not happy unless we’re moaning. And of course when we’re moaning, we’re not happy. We moaned ourselves into a recession, but admittedly we had a lot to moan about. I bet you’re saying stop saying the word “moan”. And now you’re going to moan about this to the person beside you. Sure, things aren’t great at the moment. The media has been given plenty of fuel from the government to preach “the bad times are here” and we as a nation of course are like leaches to the misery. We crave it. We don’t want a good government obviously, if we did, we wouldn’t have voted Fianna Fáil back into power (although admittedly, imagine Enda Kenny as Taoiseach...oh god!). If we had good leadership, we wouldn’t be able to moan about the government, our favourite pastime nowadays. One of mine anyway, it’s the fashionable thing to do. And of course, it’s rightly justified. We have a “fireman government”, one which doesn’t understand the word “planning”. They don’t anticipate problems, they wait for them to come along, panic and then make some snap decision which they’ll end up regretting within a month. And of course, once we had good times, growth etc. The government never thought

“wait, maybe we should plan for a recession which always comes because one of the basics of economics is that economies move in cycles”. Not at all. Sure how could the property bubble burst? What a silly idea! But hey, thanks to their incompetence, now we have something to moan about. Being the insular nation we are, we seem to think we’re the only nation with problems. Maybe if we looked to the Caribbean, we might realise how insignificant our problems are. For anyone with their head stuck in the ground, the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere, Haiti, experienced a catastrophic earthquake, registering 7.0 on the moment magnitude scale. The estimated number of deaths is approximately 200,000. The International Red Cross made an estimation that nearly 3 million people would be affected by the earthquake. The survivors are now starving, parched and many are gasping for air under rubble. Large digging machines are digging mass graves; on 21 January, the Haitian government announced that over 80,000 people are already been buried in these.

I’m not using this argument to say we shouldn’t complain about our problems, small as they are in comparison. Financially, Ireland is crippled and will be punished by the EU if our debt levels aren’t reduced. However, perhaps the next time we complain about the rain, let’s just be thankful we have a shelter to stand under and not just a pile of rubble. Kyle O’Sullivan

“work makes one free” is a chilling reminder of what was done in the unquestioning pursuit of a philosophy. This was the Irish Holocaust, unlike the Nazi Final Solution, not the crushing of bodies, although forced labour of children was involved in some cases, in our Irish Solution to an Irish Problem we had the crushing of souls, of dreams and opportunities.

CAMPUS TIMES LAUNCHES CAMPAIGN TO REMEMBER THE WOMEN OF WATERFORD’S MAGDALENE LAUNDRY

Popular Irish Internet forum database ‘hacked’

The Teachers Union of Ireland, (TUI) which represents the lecturers, instructed its members not to submit the ‘green and whites’ until the dispute has been resolved. The move follows the college management’s decision to change a previous payment structure for the correction of examination scripts due to financial difficulties and efforts to make cut backs within the college. College management claim they are unable to continue with the current payment structure due to national cutbacks affecting their budget. Prior to the introduction of semesters, college lecturers received a payment once a year for the correction of examination scripts. With the introduction of semesterisation, a circular from the Department of Education issued to all colleges 20 years ago advised that these payments be managed on a pro-rata basis.

LEADERSHIP & AWARDS SOME LIFE EXPERIENCES

Housing For Boaco

Irish Rural Dwellers Association

After organising a successful trip to Nicaragua in conjunction with NGO Housing for Boaco to build a building designed by Waterford Institute of Technology students (see opposite), I was elected to their board as secretary, a role I am still fulfilling.

Following the completion of my self published guide to the 2012 waste-water regulations (‘Septic Tanks; What the new waste-water legislation means for you’) I joined the Irish Rural Dwellers Association (IRDA). One of my first involvements was as a member of the organising committee of a special one-day conference entitled ‘Rebuilding our Rural Communities, A Platform for Recovery’ which was held in November 2013. The conference was a huge success, gaining national coverage and attracting international speakers. I am very passionate about the sustainability and viability of rural communities and all facets of life that affect these matters especially architecture. In November 2013 I was nominated to An Bord Pleanála by the IRDA as one of their two legally-prescribed nominations. I was unsuccessful in my nomination.

As chairman of WIT Architecture Society, our biggest achievement was getting involved with Waterford-based international NGO ‘Housing for Boaco’. Firstly we ran a one-day design competition in the department of architecture in which over 130 students participated. The winning entry is shown above. We then set about fund-raising in order to build this design. In total we raised just under €20,000. In August of 2011 in conjunction with Housing for Boaco I led a team of students to Nicaragua Central America to built the project. We worked on site for the first two weeks of what was an 8-week build. The building is now complete. Following the success of this project I have been elected to the committee of Housing for Boaco as Secretary and continue to work fund-raising and promoting awareness.
