Entries are now open for the Morrison's Island International Design Competition, Cork, Ireland Registered architects, landscape architects and engineers are invited to take part in a design competition to propose innovative and considered solutions for the renewal of Cork city’s quayside landscape. Participants are encouraged to collaborate with other professional disciplines, historians, craftspeople and artists. The competition aims to explore the authentic spatial and material quality of the city that has been lost in recent times and engage with the remaining historic fabric. The purpose of this competition is to unlock opportunity and potential, advance knowledge of the city and create integrated design solutions that are specific to the historic quayside landscape of Cork and of the wider city. It is to be hoped that the output of the process will contribute towards the city's future strategy for the quays. Innovative solutions cannot be generated without a truly rigorous interrogation of the past (heritage), the present (existing systems) and the future (climate change, social and economic development).
