New Architectural Design Competition

Architectural Design Competition for a New Higher Education Building at Grangegorman, Dublin

The Grangegorman Development Agency (GDA) is delighted to launch an open two-stage architectural design competition. The project is for a new Higher Education building for Ireland’s first technological university, TU Dublin at Grangegorman in Dublin’s north inner city.

The objective is to develop an enduring, adaptable, and environmentally responsible building that is reflective of the progressive ethos of TU Dublin and the needs of the building users. The project further advances the rejuvenation of the Grangegorman site as envisioned by the award-winning Grangegorman Masterplan.

The GDA is seeking entries from architects of all backgrounds. The competition forms part of a wide range of procurement strategies and presents an opportunity to reward quality design sensibilities which will contribute to the multi-phased development at Grangegorman. The Grangegorman development is creating a vibrant education and healthcare campus and an inclusive piece of the city, in a way that is sensitive to its context. The development to date represents the largest ever State investment in higher education infrastructure in Ireland.

It is anticipated that competition registration will open in December with further details to be announced then.
