The REGEN exhibition at the Architecture Factory will be held on Thursday June 5th at 6pm and everyone is invited.
the exhibition features all the work from the Department of Architecture programmes in Interior Architecture and Architectural Technology from year 1 through to Masters and PhD.
The main body of the exhibition features the graduating work of the honours degree programmes. All the projects are based on building adaption and reuse of projects around Cork. The Interior Architecture group were invited by Cork County Council to propose adaptions for buildings on Spike Island, in Cork harbour. The exhibition will run Monday-Friday from the 5th to the 19th of June inclusive in the Architecture Factory, CIT, Bishopstown, Cork.
INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE STUDENTS
BSC (HONOURS) IN INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE (LEVELS 7&8)
Interior Architecture involves the design of interiors of buildings, their layout and space planning, fitting, technical and structural resolution, furnishing and decoration, and the preparation of all technical drawings and written documentation, necessary for the carrying out of the work.
Interior Architecture is specific to a building’s interior. It stands at the intersection of Architecture, design of the built environment, sustainability, and conservation. Unlike interior design, it is architecture within the confines of an existing building. As such, the course requires a level of technical competence to compare with that of the architect, as the responsibilities to the client and community are similar.
At CIT, Interior Architecture covers the spectrum of industry specialisms. It involves the initial design and plan for use to accommodate a changed purpose, or a significantly revised design for adaptive reuse of the building shell. It considers structural adaption, sustainable redevelopment strategies, the use of light, air movement, ventilation, horizontal/vertical circulation, and servicing. The practice of Interior Architecture responds to multiple user needs and a wider social responsibility.

FINE ART & APPLIED ART STUDENTS
BACHELOR OF ARTS (HONOURS) IN FINE ART
The Fine Art programme provides a studio based education in Fine Art, with emphasis on personal creative development.

Students are introduced to the skills and philosophies of the practicing artist, and the course prepares them for active careers in the visual arts or for further study to Masters degree level.
Fine Art offers a series of very varied career paths. The course aims to instill individualism and independence. Graduates may build careers as practising artists. Other careers include teaching, photography, multimedia and crafts, and students may find employment in art criticism, as exhibition organisers and art handlers, in foundries, and as technicians and craft assistants.
BA (HONOURS) IN CONTEMPORARY APPLIED ART (CERAMICS, GLASS, TEXTILES)
Contemporary Applied Art encourages fresh ideas, inventive use of materials and techniques, and offers students the opportunity to critically engage with current practice. The course combines studio projects with practical workshop based sessions, alongside contextual academic studies where ideas, historical reference and making are integrated.
The new and exciting Contemporary Applied Art Degree course explores contemporary ideas, use of materials and offers students the opportunity to creatively develop and make objects.
