RIBA Stirling shortlist 2013 – University of Limerick
Facing the housing accommodation is the medical school, which is cool grey and monolithic, another relatively modest building with a strong presence. The central space of the medical school soars above the entry, rich in timber detailing set against massive concrete expanses, with views up to a study area overlooking the atrium, and further still to bridges and windows on higher levels.
The University of Limerick is situated roughly five miles to the east of Limerick City Centre in mid-west Ireland, nestled north and south of the River Shannon.
