London-based practice ZAP Architecture has won an RIAI-backed competition for a new entrance at Dublin City University

The emerging practice’s winning scheme was praised by competition judges for iits ‘exciting, memorable and timeless’ appearance.

ZAP’s scheme featured a series of glulam masts in a ‘loose arrangement of verticals’ which the judges claimed ‘symbolises the students, staff and graduates that constitute the university’.

In a statement, the practice said: ‘Ultimately our design is about place-making, about creating a striking and memorable visual identity for Dublin City University, both locally and around the world.

Second place went to Dublin-based de Blacam and Meagher Architects and third to Maguire McBrien.

David Flynn Architects, Taka Architects and Andrzej Toborek Architect were commended.
