1916 Glasnevin Cementry // Dublin, IRL // Competition Entry // 2013
The architectural concept comes from a number of site specific and programmatic conditions but overall the emotion we are striving to evoke is one of lightness and optimism. Its is a place of new beginnings such as the events of 1916, also of gathering and togetherness.
In this intimate, almost forgotten corner of glasnevin cemetery we create a living room between the trees on the railway boundary and the existing monument. the project creates and embraces a new public space widening the monument to south while the crescent shape in plan protects from the elements.
