UCD Architecture celebrates its Centenary in 2011. Since the first student enrolled at Earlsfort Terrace in 1911, the School has gained a national and international renown as a centre for architectural education and research. To date, it has produced more than 2000 B.Arch graduates, with many more students passing through the B.Sc. (Arch), professional practice and postgraduate programmes.

These graduates have been of vital importance to the development of Irish society over the century, shaping its built environment, accommodating its changing needs and reflecting its evolving identity. Each generation of graduates has produced leaders in the discipline, their work celebrated both in Ireland and abroad. Many others have achieved distinction in fields such as politics, music and the visual arts.

Through exhibitions, lectures and other events, the Centenary will provide the opportunity to recognise those achievements, but it is also about reflecting on the myriad connections and shared experiences which bind together all of the School’s graduates.

This website has been commissioned as part of the UCD Architecture Centenary celebrations. It is a growing archive of the history of the school, as well as an events calendar for the future.
