My Beamish Boy / (25:00) / SOCIO-CULTURAL DOCUMENTARY
The much-loved two hundred year old brewery has shut its gates forever. As they reminisce, the ex-workers must come to terms with their grief at its closure.
This documentary (directed, shot and edited by Mike Hannon) received the Made in Cork Award for Best Short Film at the Corona Cork Film Festival 2009, and was broadcast on RTÉ One in June 2010. Produced by Pat Comerford, with original music by Irene Buckley and John Spillane. Brewery interior photography by David Creedon. Supported by Cork City Council.
Thomond Park / (10:00) / ARCHITECTURE PROMO
On a cold winter's night, Munster take on Perpignan at their newly redeveloped home ground.
Thomond Park Stadium (designed by Murray Ó Laoire Architects and Stadia Architects AFL) has been described as ‘iconic‘, ‘impressive‘, ‘magnificent’ and a ‘crown jewel’. The sweeping arches of the two new stands have already become the image that all rugby fans associate with this famous ground.
Lorraine Neeson: A Certain Slant of Light / (2:30) / VISUAL ART TEASER
The artist, who works primarily with lens based media, created
this exhibition using the particular architectural qualities of the ESB
Substation in Caroline Street, Cork.
A Certain Slant of Light challenges how the viewer perceives and experiences the space. Neeson uses film, photography and the architecture of the building itself. Our experience is heightened and enhanced by such factors as the treatment of light and darkness, the utilisation of sound (or the lack thereof) and the manipulation of what the artist calls "hidden and undisclosed information".
RIAI Student Charrette / (10:00) / EDUCATIONAL TOOL
Perceptions of the city - divining and delivering the future: Observations of those involved in the built environment and cultural heritage of Cork.
As part of the formation of a brief for a Charrette series in Cork, the Cork Centre for Architectural Education and the Southern Region Royal Institute of Architects Ireland interviewed various people on their positive impressions of the city, and what they thought would make it better.
CIT Cork School of Music / (10:00) / ARCHITECTURE PROMO
A centre of musical excellence locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.
The design of the public and teaching spaces cultivate a sense of encounter, interchange and ‘esprit de corps’ for visitors, academic staff and students across all age groups. The comprehensiveness of the design approach and sensitive integration of component elements mark this project as a model of its kind.
Vivienne Roche: Light Ensemble / (10:00) / VISUAL ART INTERVIEW
A sculptural bridge between architecture and music, giving substance to the way light falls within the building’s atria at a specific calendar time.
The artist's central idea was to take a single moment in time when the architecture of the building filtered light, which it then cast as a reflection on to the walls of the atria. Timing lies at the heart of music; light at the core of the visual.After observing how light worked in the building, Roche chose the reflections cast on June 5th 2007 as being most in tune with the architecture.
GMIT Learning Resource Centre / (10:00) / ARCHITECTURE PROMO
A significant, identifiable form enhances the exterior image of the Institute, in keeping with its successful, prestigious and ambitious status.
The scale and treatment of the building creates a specific character and accumulates at the eastern end with vertical projecting copper sails. Framed views are strategically gained at the sail junctions where strip windows are inserted.
What Do I Like About Christmas? / (2:45) / COMMERCIAL
Brussels sprouts, mince pies, plum pudding.... but no turkey?
A brief and lighthearted account of what makes Christmas special for each of us. With environmental considerations foremost, the video was commissioned in lieu of a traditional paper card, forming part of an e-card greeting that was sent to all friends and clients of Murray Ó Laoire Architects.
Adham Faramaway: Art Trail '09 / (2:00) / VISUAL ART TEASER
Rooted in a fixation on culture, allegory and the fantastic, the artist expresses ideas concerning transmissions of knowledge, demonstrating fluid or floating identities.
Folk stories and early religious mythology are the basis of visual allegory demarcating the burden of aesthetic lineage. The subjects are often depicted in a moment of enlightenment, always seeking to attain or become.
T1X Dublin Airport / (20:00) / ARCHITECTURAL DOCUMENTARY
Delivering maximum visual lightness and transparency, the cloud-pattern fritting on the façade is the main feature of the project.
The two-storey steel framed extension is located at the north-western corner of the existing terminal and extends in a north-westerly direction. The full video features interviews with key members of the Murray Ó Laoire Architects team on bringing the principles outlined in the original ADPI design through the technical process of design development.
