Jury Comment:

‘The new UCD Student Centre is an exciting building which embraces many of the guiding principles of Universal Design. It is evident that the Design Team engaged with and carefully considered the end-users throughout the design and construction phases. The use of colour, choice of materials and the simplicity of its layout contribute greatly to its ease of use. The result is a dynamic building devoted to providing sports and recreational facilities to the students and staff of UCD as well as to members of the public, regardless of age, size, ability or disability.’
