CCAE graduate, Laura Hurley wins EU Mies Young Talent Award 2023



On 29th June 2023, Laura Hurley was announced as one of the overall winners of the EU Mies van der Rohe ‘Young Talent Architecture Award’ 2023 at the prestigious Venice Biennale. Laura, a graduate of Cork Centre for Architectural Education, was one of two CCAE projects selected as part of the nine-strong group finalists.


Calum Gallogley, Anthony Keniry, and James (JJ) Stack make up the team for the second CCAE project to be named as finalists for the award with their project ‘Lost Landscapes’ while Neil O’Brien and Fergal O’Connor were also shortlisted for the prize for their project: ‘[Ex]isle: Towards an Absurb Architecture’. The graduates’ projects were selected by an esteemed panel of international assessors.


The three projects were part of the ‘Islands Unknown’ Studio (2020.2021) and ‘Island Imaginaries’ Studio (2021.2022) - where students were asked to define new problematics associated with fragile Island terrains - prompting different ways to engage these distinct ecosystems. The projects define new types of experimental socio-ecological and cultural conditions that produce new ecological and atmospheric horizons.
