University College Dublin launches international competition to design new precinct and academic building


University College Dublin (UCD) and Malcolm Reading Consultants (MRC) have launched the Future Campus international design competition to design a precinct plus a Centre for Creative Design. The announcement marks the beginning


of a global search for an integrated design team to firstly, create an entrance precinct masterplan. Secondly, they will devise a concept design for an integrated 8,000 m2 building that “expresses the University’s creativity” – the Centre for Creative Design, which will be a “making and learn- ing lab”. The campus has a strong architectural


pedigree with a mid-20th-century core designed by Polish architect Andrzej Wejchert, and world-leading facilities. The urban design element of the


competition challenge reflects UCD’s desire to create a “strong and flexible urban design vision” for an area of the campus totalling around 24 ha, informed by place making, accessibility and people flows.

This anticipates the potential for up to 335,000 m2


senting a footprint of circa 67,000 m2 The Centre for Creative Design is


of new development (repre- ).


conceived as a charismatic yet well- integrated building that is a “living learn- ing lab” – using innovative materials and new technologies to express its purpose as the university’s home of design studios and laboratories, and maker, project and fabrication spaces. It is intended to foster interdisciplinary learning and encourage academic and business collaborations. Both the Centre for Creative Design and the masterplan vision will exemplify sustainable principles and demonstrate environmentally-aware and “future-facing” design. Professor Andrew J. Deeks, president of


University College Dublin said that the overarching design challenge embodied by the masterplan vision and the Centre for Creative Design is to “give the university greater presence, greater visibility so that it


resonates, becomes better integrated and is a distinctive entity within the city of Dublin.” “When people come here,” he continued,


“we want them to immediately engage with, and strongly relate to, the university. We want our physical environment to inspire and energise students and faculty tutors; local innovators and communities.” The first-stage global search will


culminate in the selection of five teams chosen on the basis of relevant skills and past experience. At the second stage, these teams will be invited to visit the site and receive further briefing, and will be asked to produce a vision for the Entrance Precinct Masterplan and a concept design for the Centre for Creative Design. International teams will be required to team up with a local executive team during the second stage. An honorarium of €40,000 will be paid to each of the shortlisted teams following the conclusion of the competition.
