The Humanities Institute and the Institute for Study of Social Change form two phases of a major research for the University Arts Faculty. Situated on the periphery of the University Complex the buildings adjoin an earlier research block and are arranged in a curve around an external recreation space. Attention has been paid to the detail of the building and quality of the interfaces of each building component. Social spaces have been design and located strategically in the building to encourage interaction whilst maximizing the quality of space available. MOB have acted as Architects for UCD on several different projects since the mid nineties.
