DIT Bolton Street Retrofit Exhibition

DIT Bolton Street Retrofit Exhibition is a public exhibition of work for a feasibility study of DIT Bolton Street. It’s on display on the stage of the main student concourse area of DIT alongside an accompanying exhibition to celebrate the centenary of the college. Both exhibitions have been prepared by two architectural graduates, Kieran Donnellan and Paul O’ Brien.

They have been working on the study for four months and have created varying scales of intervention which exploit the full potential of the Bolton Street site and surrounds, beginning on the smallest scale with a new colour and signage scheme and expanding to a highly ambitious introduction of a new ten storey library building in the existing car-park, an urban move aimed at future-proofing the site and allowing DIT the extra floor space needed to accommodate a central northside library facility.

The exhibition will continue until early May 2012. Constructive feedback is welcome from all parties, and will be taken on board for any work to occur during the next stage of the project.
