dc.description.abstract My thesis project is exploring the way we live today. In our Irish context the suburbs have been spreading out from the cities like a virus, each development clothed to the next as the life-line of the roads deteriorates and clogs. Now that our developments have slowed down we have time to reflect and rethink our form of living before our economy turns around and the pace picks up again. I am questioning our current individualistic mode of consumption exploring the possibilities of bringing our social and living selves back into harmony within society. We need to live on this earth interdependently, so we can rely on our neighbours, our good will as humans to make this earth a place that we can share and pass onto all the generations. I have chosen Milford Grange , a suburban estate of Limerick to test my desires. My project will be a new form of living recycling the existing materials to create this architecture which will be the frame work to support this new form of living. en_US
