2010 – Albert Basin, Newry, Co. Down

Architect: Studio Daniel Libeskind


Parker Green International, a developer submitted design proposals as part of a tender bid for the Albert Basin site in Newry. The 15 acre site, which is currently owned by Newry & Mourne district occupies a pivotal location in Newry city centre. It is old brownfield land that was previously industrial docks and warehouses that have fallen into disrepair. They commissioned Danniel Libeskind to come up with a concept design for a signature building. The precise nature of the structure is undetermined, and is more a concept than a detailed design, but it is likely to be a cultural building.
