An adverse effect of the recent explosion of population in Ireland is the inability of the educational system to adapt to new circumstances.

• Currently, 750 schools in Ireland are renting temporary prefab accommodation.

• Most schools have had to use the same prefabs for longer than expected periods, far exceeded their design lives.

• In some cases current teachers are now teaching in the same sub-standard, dilapidated prefabs they were educated in.

• Although 13 new schools built around Dublin will open their doors next September, the construction of new schools is falling long short of the population growth in and around the city.

Design Challenge:

The brief for this competition is to design a transportable pavillion that will function as a learning tool for school children. The aim of this brief is to create a space that embodys a lesson, and successfully explains and de-mystifies ecological and sustainable, architecture and principles.
