Oughterard Architecture!
Posted by admin, April 15, 2014

Students from St. Paul’s Secondary School Oughterard have been getting creative during workshops with Architect Michael Walshe.

These images show their work with paper models, making spaces and enclosures in different shapes. Photographed by a window with small human figures, the group explored how light affects the way the spaces work.

After a slide show and discussion of historic architecture, the next session was all about surveying certain areas of the school, with a view to changing a design element in future workshops.
