Cruinniu na nOg 2022 - Plyscape Architectural Workshop
Join Laura & Ciarán of Islander Architects for a free interactive architectural workshop for teenagers on June 11th as part of Cruinniú na nÓg 2022.
Plyscape is a chance for young people to come together and build shared experiences through an exciting day-long workshop. Plyscape allows participants to build increased agency over their built environment as they customize and assemble plywood structures. Participants will work with demountable plywood elements allowing them to build, reconfigure, and rebuild over the course of the workshop.
Each participant will receive a set of prefabricated plywood shapes that they can join together to create a variety of collective temporary installations. There will be mixed media available on the day to allow the participants customise their plywood elements. With this simple kit of parts they will explore their creative expression and in doing so transform the public realm for the better; from a single chair to a performance space - the possibilities are endless!
All Plyscape participants will get to keep their customised plywood elements for reuse in the future. Together we will create better, inclusive public spaces.

Islander Architects was established in 2020 by Laura Carroll & Ciarán Molumby. The name Islander evokes the spirit of our work; of being resourceful and responding to the uniqueness of each project. We are deeply inspired by the contexts we design within and the people we design for. We are actively involved in education & design based community outreach. We have consciously located our practice in Balbriggan to play our part in its rejuvenation.
