These architects collaborated directly with Transition Year students on the design of educational spaces.Ten winning architect-student teams from counties Cavan, Limerick, Louth, Cork and Dublin created films, installations, models and drawings to illustrate their ideas about learning spaces and environments.The exhibition had previously toured in Dublin, Carlow, Belfast and Cork.Rachel McAree, Education Curator for the IAF had previously noted how “it was inspirational to see the students and architects working together on their projects about school design” while also stating that “the exhibits are amazing, full of creative ideas and innovation.”
