Steven Holl to redevelop University College Dublin

 
Steven Holl Architects has won the competition to redevelop Ireland’s largest  university, carrying the day over the other five finalists: Diller Scofidio + Renfro, John Ronan Architects, O'Donnell + Tuomey, Studio Libeskind, and UNStudio. The winning design includes a Centre for Creative Design, whose prismatic forms are inspired by the geology of the Giant’s Causeway, the area of 40,000 hexagonal basalt columns located on the coast of Northern Ireland. This building acts as a gateway to the campus, leading to seven new quadrangles of open green space. The pedestrian circulation, with its H-plan organization, includes covered paths.
