Visitor comment Cork

I have visited the exhibition three times and have been amazed by all of the projects. What a wonderful initiative uniting the best of architectural acumen with the raw unfettered imagination of teenagers. particularly I loved the design from the school in Fermoy. They incorporated beautifully natural and harmonious learning spaces with cutting edge energy production and created something truly new and refreshing. Triskel Christchurch - keep up the great work. What a great space you have yourselves. I love that place, by anonymous on A Space for Learning Cork
