Exciting End of Year Exhibitions
Published on: Thursday, 16 June 2011
At various venues across Cork City.
17th – 25th June
10 - 17th June
Nexus Centre, CIT's Bishopstown Campus
A group of young designers have taken on the dilapidated buildings of Cork and offered a new perspective on their future. Many buildings that were to face demolition in the boom years now lay idle and decay before our very eyes. CIT’s Interior Architecture students have taken on beautiful buildings like the McKenzie building on Camden Quay or less obvious buildings like the R&H hall Building on Albert Quay. They have come up with all sorts of ideas such as an extreme sports centre, an I-Max cinema or much needed Mental Health facilities.
These ideas are part of an exhibition of their work at the Nexus Centre opening at the CIT's Bishopstown campus on Friday June 10th at 6pm and running for a week. The students are hoping to open a dialogue on the future of our built environment. The students have particularly focused on the value of the current buildings in sequestered energy.
Lecturer in Interior Architecture Marc O Riain commented, “In demolition we add energy to landfill without considering the carbon cost of the replacement with new structures. This is becoming more important as the EU and Irish governments have committed to carbon reduction targets by 2020 and as the construction and building services sector are responsible for 45% of all carbon emissions (Mielke 2011), it is completely clear that sustainable refurbishment is the way forward rather than replacement architecture."
3rd - 16th June
