Circumnavigating the Irish Coast

The first month of this study abroad program was spent travelling around the Irish Coast, spending a few days each in the cities of Dublin, Cork, Killarney, Limerick, Galway, Sligo, Derry, and Belfast, learning about the culture, history, and landscape of each area. During this month of travel, we studied the works of Irish authors and poets and made travel-sized models based on our experiences in the cities. The second half of the trip was spent back in Dublin, where we researched Irish architectural typologies and used studio space at University College Dublin to design four houses that reflected four different parts of the country.
