Jerry Buttimer TD launched an exhibition of work by TY students from Coláiste Choilm, Ballincollig, Co Cork.
The students worked with architect Seán Antóin Ó Muirí on a programme of workshops, building visits and architectural walking tours, supported by teacher Danny Moynihan, an architecture enthusiast!
The design projects on display at Ballincollig Shopping centre are based on ideas for a “personal room” in typical suburban back gardens, all specially designed to support the students’ interests and hobbies. Their innovative designs include a circular dance studio, a ball-alley and an intriguing space enclosing a tree. Jerry Buttimer commended the hard work and creativity put in by the students, architect and teacher and complimented the IAF’s scheme for raising young people’s awareness of the built environement.
