Limerick, Ireland – The Trustees of the Limerick Free Library and Museum have announced an architectural competition, inviting architects in independent practice to submit their designs for the proposed Carnegie Library and Museum, which is set to be built in the Peoples’ Park. The competition aims to recognize talent and innovation in architectural design and encourage architects to contribute to Limerick’s cultural landscape.
A prize of £75 will be awarded to the design placed first in the competition, and £25 to the second-placed design. Each submitted design must bear a unique motto or distinguishing mark and must be accompanied by a sealed envelope containing the architect’s name and address.
Submissions should be sent to Mr W. M. Nolan, Town Clerk and secretary to the trustees, at the Town Clerk’s Office in the Town Hall, by the 18th of June. Interested architects can obtain the competition’s conditions and a map showing the site from Mr Nolan upon request. This competition offers an exciting opportunity for architects to showcase their skills and play a significant role in enhancing Limerick’s cultural offerings and public spaces.
