The IAF was delighted to be working in partnership with Fingal County Council Arts Office on two architects-in-schools schemes.
Architects Maria Tarsouli and Kate Dowling worked with Balbriggan Community College and Santa Sabina, Sutton in May, with both groups using the school buildings and spaces as the starting point for their creative projects. The scheme was also part of the research for My Architecture Design Journal, an architecture handbook for schools to be launched Autumn 2012.
