Student Shows 2012: University of Limerick School of Architecture

Ray Kappe sees SAUL reach maturity

In seven years Limerick’s school, known as SAUL, has reached maturity and its direction under chairman Merritt Bucholz is excellent at this time.

Standout unit

The thesis projects this year and those represented in the exhibit were interesting in content and on the whole presented well. The use of computer drawings in combination with hand-drawn overlay provides the balance between hand drawing and computer drawing that was desired by Bucholz at the time of inception of the school. The thesis preparation material  was on the whole thoughtful, thorough and very well done. There seemed to be a passion demonstrated by the students in their projects.

In a short number of years SAUL has taken its place as an important school of architecture.

Standout students

The inaugural SAUL Thesis Award 2012 was presented to Marian Dinneen for her design proposal, which re-imagines a newly amalgamated local government entity for Limerick.
