Shortlist Gallery

University College Dublin’s Future Campus project focuses on enlivening and enhancing the University’s extensive campus, creating a highly-visible and welcoming entrance precinct, as well as a charismatic new architectural addition, the Centre for Creative Design.

Ninety-eight teams from 28 countries entered the first stage of the competition, and a shortlist of six teams was selected by a panel chaired by University College Dublin President Professor Andrew J. Deeks. The shortlisted teams were asked to prepare urban design visions for the Entrance Precinct Masterplan as well as concept designs for the Centre for Creative Design. These concepts, including a short description from each team, are below. The jury met in July 2018 to interview the shortlist and selected the team led by Steven Holl Architects as the winner of the competition.
