In 2020 our Architects in Schools exhibition moved online as part of Project 20×20 – A Year Like No Other.
The resulting web-based exhibition is a celebration of the creativity of Transition Year students from all over Ireland.
In total, 30 schools participated in the initiative during the 2019/20 academic year and design projects from 12 schools are profiled in this exhibition. Ideas and themes explored include architecture and film, inclusive design, structure, heritage and a re-imagining of school environments.
The exhibition is in two parts: a video overview (below) and a series of 12 Instagram posts, showcasing the students’ work in more detail.
