morrison’s island, cork

Our analysis of the island revealed many qualities, hidden moments, disconnected spaces and buildings of architectural and historical significance that are not readily accessible or appreciated, and we chose to highlight this in our Nolli plan style figure ground site plan. Any development of the quays needs to appreciate these urban moments and possibilities. At the heart of our proposal is an appreciation of the need for connections and linkages across the island that may be physical or latent and implied. Our proposal has a number of elements, including two new bridges and sequences of new public spaces that open onto the quays.
