too true. if therewere other major centres of architectural education in the country, the industry would not have to be so dublin orientated. this website, for example, rarely has non dublin orientated forums. do you think this is true ??? or is it just my imagination. i have heard little or no debate about the massive developement plans for the developement of the docks in cork, surely this is a project of potentially national importance???
if the education system was ‘decentralised’smaller cities cork, galway etc… might have a better chance of improving there architectural culture and stock, by the increased hosting of architectural exhibitions, more student and competition projects outside dublin etc…
there is certainly room for improvement. and hopefully room for great architects and great architecture outside dublin.
