Photographs of an area which includes the Broadstone Plaza, the Grangegorman Gate and the TU East Quad.
Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios (FCBStudios) and AHR were appointed by the Eriugena consortium to design the Central and East Quads respectively for the new Grangegorman Campus
Schools based in the area include Creative Arts, Media, Social Sciences, as well as the Conservatory of Music & Drama. AHR and Eriugena took the bold decision to depart from the exemplar design which accompanied the brief to create a series of dramatic atrium spaces around which the creativity of the various students can be experienced and shared. Double and triple height learning spaces combine with tightly controlled enclosed spaces to give a rich mix of formal and informal learning opportunities.
Gareth Banks, AHR regional director, said: “The arts and media courses united within the new East Quad building will provide an exciting new creative hub for the city. We’re thrilled to have provided students with unique and engaging resources for their learning. Not only will the students of TU Dublin benefit from the development’s industry-leading spaces, but also the public, who will be able to enjoy outstanding music performances and theatre productions held within the 400-seat concert hall.”
The 16,940m2 East Quad building offers state-of-the-art facilities to house a diverse range of schools within the College of Arts and Tourism, incorporating specialist design elements to allow the highest standards from the academic organisation. AHR worked with an array of technical consultants, including TV and theatre experts, to deliver dedicated spaces and new possibilities for students within the building. These areas include art and design studios, workshops, rehearsal spaces and recording studios, as well as a TV studio, production suite and black box theatre with full blue screen facilities. AHR has also offered to provide the College with 3D architectural models of the campus, enabling Game Design students to create games based within their very own university as part of their syllabus.
Throughout the building, AHR has created natural gathering points to inspire creative meetings between students. These spaces actively encourage collaboration, leading students from the different creative disciplines to interact, exchange ideas and develop valuable relationships.

I HAVE THIS AND THE 135mm LENS
VERSATILE FULL-FRAME LENS: The powerful lens for the mirrorless full-frame system of Sony fulfills the highest requirements. Despite its compact design, the image meets the expectations of professional photographers. EXCELLENT RESOLUTION AND HIGH CONTRAST: Richly saturated and vivid colours are a must in the creation of lasting impressions. However, stray light within an optical system leads to a lightening of the image that is particularly noticeable in the shadows. This reduces image contrast, with the result that exposures lack contrast and appear faded. To avoid this, ZEISS combines various specially developed technologies to reduce the undesirable effects of stray light. ROBUST AND WEATHERPROOF METAL CONSTRUCTION: Thanks to features that are designed to keep out dust and spray water, the lens is perfectly suited for critical outdoor conditions. It is also designed for many years of intensive use. SMOOTH AND RELIABLE AUTOFOCUS: The design of the autofocus system requires an extremely accurate shifting of particular lens groups. The focusing system of ZEISS lenses is designed to ensure a robust and smooth-running autofocus mechanism with the best imaging performance.
