Waterford, Ireland. A cultural quarter in Ireland’s oldest city.
By collaborating closely with the local school of architecture, the city of Waterford has provided a space for architectural students to create a “warehouse of ideas”.
The initiative brings creative young people and the city’s decision-makers into a reciprocal relationship that helps envision a creative, sustainable regeneration of the city and an action plan for its cultural heritage. This includes co-design activities for cultural events and the mapping and recording of streets for future projects. The aim is to develop the historic 18th century Georgian area of Waterford, into a vibrant cultural realm.
