Reply To: Information on the UCD Arts Block
That’s possible but the Arts block seems to fit the kind of philosophy that was applied to new campuses in the UK, the outskirts of Paris and elsewhere. But it’s a nice point and I’ll certainly check it out.
What I do know is that the Paris revolt occurred in 1968 but the UCD Gentle Revolution happened in 1969. The Administration and Arts block was built in 1971.
I’d assume that, since the design of the Arts block was opened up to a competition, which Wejchert won, he may have won because he incorporated these tricks into the building. I wouldn’t be surprised if the college administration hadn’t thought about it until he suggested it. But I’m only surmising.
