UCC/CIT MARCH STUDENTS AWARDED 2015 EUROPEAN ARCHITECTURAL MEDAL, BEST DIPLOMA PROJECTS, PRIZE FOR INNOVATION (PROBLEM SOLVING)
UCC/CIT Architecture (MA) students Kieran Cremin and Eoghan Horgan’s project “Entangled City” was awarded a European Architectural Medal in Architecture (Prize for Innovation) in December 2015.
“This prize is a fitting and well deserved acknowledgement of our student talent and their incredible work ethic; all of which, well hidden behind modest exteriors” (Jason O’Shaughnessy, Master of Architecture Course Director).
The project addresses the cultural dissonance between Prague’s history and present day tourist industry. You can view the full project and the Jury comments at this link.
Well done also to our student Aisling Byrne who was also shortlisted for the European Architectural Medals ‘Best Diploma Project’. You can view Aisling’s project here.
