Place Shapers
Posted by admin, November 13, 2013

Check out these architecture projects by North Dublin teenagers!

The Place Shapers project teamed up architects with second level
students from two Fingal schools, in North County Dublin, to investigate
the architecture and urban design of their own neighbourhoods.


Place Shapers Luttrellstown Community College


Transition year students from Luttrellstown Community College, Dublin 15
and Skerries Community College worked with architects Robert Bourke, Maria
Tarsouli, Kate Dowling, Lisa Kenney, Myrto Dowling and filmmaker Peter Kelly.
Supported by this creative team, the students learned about architecture, urban design and film. The project equipped students to
critically appraise their built and natural environment.

Place Shapers highlights the value of including young people in the design and
planning processes that shape our environment, enabling positive dialogue between
young citizens and those with responsibility for its design.
