DOCOMOMO Ireland have announced the winners of their competition Central Bank in the 21st Century.

First prize went to GKMP Architects for their project Open City School. Best Presentation went to Amélie Conway, Dominic Lavelle, Brian Barber, Joe Swan for Down To Earth Practice and David Lawless from DIT won the Student Prize for his project Danteum. These and all other entries can be seen at the current exhibition held at the Irish Architectural Archive.

The Headquarters of the Central Bank of Ireland on Dame Street in Dublin, (Stephenson & Gibney Associates, 1979) will soon be vacated by its current occupants. The purpose of the competition is to create a body of ideas about how the Central Bank building might approach its next phase of life. The principal aim is to re-imagine the building and its immediate surrounding environment in an innovative and exciting way.
