Best Public Space 2012
- Location: Dublin
This significant public realm project utilises air-rights over a railway line to forge a new linear urban space. Busy with cafes, seating and playgrounds it heals the century-long severance between town and sea, forming a long belvedere addressing the harbour. Linking to gardens and streets behind, it forms an enhanced setting for both existing Town Hall and forthcoming County Library.
