Brief Description

The Central Quad is among the first of TU Dublin’s quadrangle buildings to be developed at the City Campus, Grangegorman. The project is designed as a response to the typology of a classic ‘Quadrangle’. The entry to the building is a major shared foyer space which connects to a large seven storey atrium at the heart of the building and is overlooked by landings and informal study spaces. The atrium is bisected by a long-running stair. As this project is in an advanced stage of delivery, artists are invited to consider the potential of the foyer and atrium without any adjustment to primary structure or general arrangement of the current design.The overall art budget for all three commissions (TU Dublin West Quad, TU Dublin central Quad, and HSE residential care neighborhood) is €240k ($269k). It is important to note that this will be shared between the three builds. No single commission will be less than €60($67) – €80k($89k). http://ggda.ie/public_art/three-art-opportunities
