TULLAMORE COMMUNITY ARTS CENTRE, COUNTY OFFALY
Winner, RIAI International Architecture Competition 2012
This project is driven by a communal desire to create interaction between professional artists and practicing amateurs. We want to create a plan without hierarchy; a very public building. All publicly accessed spaces of the programme are put on the one floor. While each space has its particular requirements we want these spaces and their attendant circulation space to be treated with equal importance. The foyer becomes a potential arts space itself. The proposed arts centre does not have a front or a back. All sides are equal in their permeable relationship to what is made around them.
