A bold addition to the Trinity campus, designed to accommodate over 200 members of academic staff and 3,700 graduate and undergraduate students. The building presents a tough, faceted facade to Nassau Street, adding a new sheltered entrance to the campus at one end. The lower two levels contain lecture theatres, while upper floors cluster accommodation to allow flexibility in between. Light is brought into the deep plan by internal courts. To Fellows’ Square, the facade is more open, glazed and stepping out at each floor level.

First-come basis: Just turn up and look out for Open House Dublin volunteers. Wheelchair accessible. Photography is not allowed on this tour.

Designed by: Ahrends Burton Koralek
Building Date: 1968
Location: Trinity College Dublin, Nassau St, Dublin 2
