Re: Civic Architecture in Irish towns

Home Forums Ireland Source Arts Centre, Thurles Re: Civic Architecture in Irish towns


It seems that there is a spate of new high quality Civic buildings completed in the last few years in the larger towns: Thurles, Naas, Navan, as already mentioned, and of course the Letterkenny Area Office, the Limerick office, the Tullamore office etc……. As a student, can I ask some of the practicising architects how such projects are 1) decided to be built and funded, and 2) how the Architect is chosen.
As a native of Louth, I feel completely let down with the recent civic projects in Louth, particularly the Louth County council offices, the Decentralised government department in Dundalk (social welfare methinks) and the new Art gallery in Drogheda, which is nearing completion (I’m guessing).
