The Cork Centre for Architectural Education (CCAE) is a joint venture from UCC and CIT, with undergraduate and postgraduate students set to move into a new purpose-designed school adjoining the Nano Nagle Place complex on Douglas Street.
Since 2007, the CCAE had operated out of a former commercial premises on Copley Street. This premises is now being converted into student accommodation.
State-of-the-art technology, including IT, workshop space and 3D laser cutting materials, will all be available to students to give them the best experience possible, too.
Gareth O’Callaghan, director of JCA Architects, explained what the team set out to achieve.
The CCAE will be open to the public for Culture Night on Friday, September 21, with student work being exhibited.
