A design for a 1000 pupil secondary school has emerged as the winner in an international design competition organised by the RIAI

The competition was instigated by the Minister for Education, Ruairi Quinn, to help bring fresh thinking and creativity to the design of schools. The competition attracted 154 entries from 14 countries, the most entries received for a design competition in Ireland.

Congratulating ARPL Architects on their “innovative design”, Mr Quinn said that, children in Tallaght “can look forward to a school space that truly reflects the needs of the 21st-century student”,

The design by ARPL arranges clusters of teaching spaces around a central “public square” allowing the circulation to become a series of social or teaching breakout spaces. These ideas are combined with a colour and art strategy to create a unique arrangement of places and special spaces for the school children.
