the Department have a generic design for a 16 classroom primary school now which they seem to just plant on whatever site becomes available. For example, recent ones in the planning process at Adamstown, Ongar and Littlepace all look the exact same. It makes sense from an economic and time point of view but as for schools forming part of the community and for communities, in turn, to have their own identities it’s rubbish. architecture seems to have no place in designing the most fundamental element in the socialisation of children. They’re all surrounded by car parking too by the way, which in some cases physically obstruct kids who cycle and walk… amazing!!!

but i guess we probably should be grateful they’re building proper schools at all. The amount of planning applications for prefabs all over the Dublin Region, even now after a decade of boom, would make you wonder what exactly they’ve been at…
