Description

Situated at the heart of the main campus, ‘The Quad’ is surrounded by a group of imposing limestone buildings constructed between 1847 and 1849, when UCC was first founded. Designed by the gifted architectural partnership of Thomas Deane and Benjamin Woodward, the buildings follow the College style of the 1840s. This style has variously been described as Perpendicular Gothic, Tudor Gothic or Victorian Gothic. Mr James Mangan, the well-known Cork jeweller and clockmaker, installed the tower clock in 1851.

When UCC first opened, the buildings were the hub of academic life. Today the West Wing still has several lecture theatres, but is also home to many of the administrative offices responsible for the day-to-day running of the University. The North Wing houses UCC's unique collection of Ogham Stones, the Aula Maxima (Great Hall), and the Visitors' Centre, a centre which caters for the many visitors to the College. The East Wing, originally built as the private residence of the first President, Sir Robert Kane, continues to be the location of the President's and Vice Presidents' Offices.

Nice. Could you geotag it so I can find the school on the map? P.S. Wouldn't that just be a triad?

I neglected to give credit to nutterguy for his work on this one, apologies mate, and it has been edited in the tags!!

This is specatular, especially for a first synth. If you add a few highlights, the transitions between them will probably look like magic...

You two should consider filling in the 'Author' metadata in your photos before synthing. It becomes increasingly important in collaborative synths or (in the future) linked synths.

Great shots, though.
