This extension forms the new main entrance of Cork Institute of Technology’s Bishopstown campus. Referencing historic university campuses such as Trinity College Dublin, three new buildings have been built around a circular green. They not only provide an upgraded facility for higher education – one that serves the educational process and inspires learning – but give the campus a distinctive character, gravitas and sense of place.
