MRY and DMOD Architects Win AIA Honor Award

16.01.12

MRY Architects and DMOD Architects have won a prestigious AIA (American Institute of Architects) Honor Award for Regional and Urban Design for their Grangegorman Masterplan for Dublin Institute of Technology. The Grangegorman Master Plan represents the largest higher-education campus development ever undertaken in the history of the state of Ireland, creating a vibrant new urban quarter for Dublin’s north inner city.

It will accommodate 422,300 square meters of academic and residential buildings for DIT, along with replacement psychiatric facilities and new primary care facilities for the HSE, and new amenities for the local community and the wider surrounding city.

The site is 73 acres which is currently used by the old St. Brendan’s Psychiatric Hospital. It has been walled off from the rest of the city of Dublin since the early nineteenth century and is one of the largest undeveloped pieces of land in the city.

The Masterplan was created by MRY and DMOD along with Shaffrey Associates (Conservation), ARUP (Engineering), Battle McCarthy Consulting Engineers (Environmental Sustainability) and Lützow 7 (Landscape Architecture).
