2010: Dublin Architect STUDIO NEGRI is shortlisted for the prestigious Europan prize.
Judges comments: ”The candidate strongly embeds his scheme in Ballymun. It is shown in the overall context of Ballymun and bravely extends the scheme beyond the site taking in the surroundings. It does the counter axis to the main street very well and connects the site to the adjacent park whilst giving a meaning to the retained chimney and boilers. It would be a good addition to the regeneration of Ballymun.”
Europan is a biennial competition for young architects under 40 years of age to design innovative housing schemes for sites across Europe. The competition encourages architects to address social and economic changes occurring in towns and cities and offers the opportunity for cross-cultural learning and networking for the architects and site promoters involved.
