Industria is the culmination of a year-long project by DIT’s final year architecture students. Over the course of the year, and in conjunction with IDA Ireland, the modern workplace has been reimagined.
The brief asked students to investigate the city of Waterford – Ireland’s fifth largest city. Students prepared both strategic urban visions for the city and create architectural proposals with potential investors. The results are a wide variety of typologies that all interpret the idea of ‘Working Life’ in contemporary society, with designs located on sites across the city including a vertical brewery, a hotel adapted for use as an apiary, a river water treatment plant and a drone testing facility.
Industria will run from 24 – 28 June at The Chocolate Factory, Dublin 1. Entry is free. For more information visit industria15.tumblr.com.
