Turoe

A2 are delighted to be appointed by The National Monuments of Ireland as architects for the proposed enclosure for the Turoe Stone, Co. Galway. Dating from the period 100B.C to 100 A.D., the Turoe Stone is a glacial erratic (H 1.2m) shaped into a flattened cylinder
with a domed top. Its upper body is covered with a well-preserved quadripartite arrangement of three-plane curvilinear ornament of La Tène style and bounded below by a horizontal band of incised step-pattern. The proposed glazed enclosure is sheltered by a table-like corten steel structure of three piers supporting a circular roof disc with an oculus at its centre.
