OPEN CALL FOR DESIGNERS FOR TOWN THRESHOLD IN KILMALLOCK, CO. LIMERICK.

Any artistic discipline is welcome however, we feel the call is suitable for architects, urban designers and landscape architects. Graduates are also welcome to apply. The call is not limited to one individual and we welcome applications from groups who wish to work together on this project.  Limerick City and County Council will work with the Adaptive Governance Lab at the School of Architecture, University of Limerick (UL), to activate a community design process in July ‐ October of 2018, aimed at allowing placemaking solutions to emerge.

The specific proposal will focus on developing a town ‘threshold’, which will have the purpose of welcoming people to the town, slowing traffic down to provide a safer environment for pedestrians and cyclists, beautifying the approach road with landscaping and informing the development of a town identity through a designer lead community creativity endeavour.  The entire process will be informed by interaction with the community, and the physical realization of the Town threshold will be developed through experimental interventions that can be realized as collaborative projects. These will involve physical installations, which may incorporate a virtual and/or operational aspect.
