Scott Tallon Walker Architects is pleased to announce the launch of their new website http://www.stwarchitects.com.
In collaboration with Redbox Media and Salter Baxter, we have redeveloped our website. The new website is a strategic medium which provides us with the best opportunity to portray the unparalleled expertise our people and the diversity of our projects to the widest audience possible.
The website is optimised for a broad range of browsers including hand held browsers such as iPhones. New and exciting forms of media including Vimeo, Flickr, Twitter and Linkedin are being employed to communicate the work of Scott Tallon Walker Architects.
Aviva Stadium, formally Lansdowne Road Stadium reopens its doors on 14th May 2010 with an all seated capacity of 50,000. The design is the result of a joint partnership between Populous (formally HOK SVE) and Scott Tallon Walker Architects.
The stadium consists of a continuous curvilinear shaped stand enclosing all four sides of the ground. The South, East and West stands has four tiers of seating for spectators. The bottom and top tiers provides the main volume of spectator facilities. The second tier provides facilities for premium ticket holders and the third tier provides facilities for corporate boxes. There are 10,000 seats at premium level and a further 1,300 at box level. The North stand comprises of one low level seating tier, to reflect its proximity to the residential properties at that end of the ground.
The redeveloped stadium has been designed to provide superb facilities not alone for spectators but also for players, the media and the many support personnel needed to stage all events.

Neasa Hourigan attended a 24 Hour Universal Design Challenge organised by TrinityHaus and the Centre for Excellence in Universal Design (CEUD) in association with the Royal College of Art Helen Hamlyn Centre.
The 24 Hour Universal Design Challenge will invited design professionals in Ireland, from a range of disciplines, to take part on teams of approximately 8 people. Engineering and designer teams were challenged to come up with ideas to allow disabled people to get around Dublin city, writes John Reynolds STRONG COFFEE, intense collaboration and a wide range of ideas and opinions fuelled Dublin’s first 24-hour Universal Design Challenge last Friday and Saturday, and the capital’s streets might soon become a little easier to navigate as a result.
Five diverse teams of web and product designers, architects, engineers, design students and partners discovered that the city presents a surprising number of obstacles to those with disabilities who are trying to get from A to B.
