Printing House Square is the first new square to be built in Trinity College Dublin for 200 years. A new gateway between college and city opens the historic campus to the city along what had been an impermeable section of Pearse Street. The courtyard form provides student accommodation, health and disability services, and a sports centre - its stone roof folding down to provide an intimate context around the 18th century Printing House. The building enshrines Trinity's policies of inclusivity and sustainability, creating optimum conditions for students and staff to live, work and learn.
