RMJM and Taylor Architects unveil new engineering school for Ireland

RMJM and Ireland-based Taylor Architects have released these images of their 60 million euro (£40 million) engineering school for the National University of Ireland (NUI) in Galway.

The 14,200m2 zinc-clad building, for the governing authority of NUI Galway, has been conceived as a pavilion in a park, 'referencing the university's original 1845 quadrangle building.'

The new building will unite the university's five engineering departments - civil, electronic,

industrial, engineering hydrology, and mechanical and biomedical - which are currently at 13 different locations.

It will house undergraduate and postgraduate facilities for around 1,500 students and will also include laboratories, research facilities, workshops, computer suites and lecture rooms.

Work is expected to start on site in February 2008.
