The Space for Learning exhibition runs at the NCAD Gallery, 100 Thomas Street, Dublin 8, from 5th November 2010 until the 29th January 2011. Below is a preview of our display table with models of the students' designs and mirror reflecting a film about the work (photos © alice clancy). You can watch our film, which has been narrated by Chris, here. We hope you can visit the exhibition and see the students' ideas for improving schools through good design.

Exhibition Preparation - The Bench

The team spent much of last week gathering together worn out table tops and broken school chairs for their bench design, a key part of our exhibition proposal. Last Thursday and Friday, the students cut out the table tops using the measurements that we decided upon at the design stage. The timber pieces were then glued, clamped and left to dry over the weekend. We met this morning to see the results and attach the chair legs. Just a few adjustments to be made, but otherwise a great success!
