Opening a public conversation about material provenance, construction practices and their role in the greater climate change debate, the KinShip EcoLab Competition invites professional architects, artists, designers, eco-builders or craftspeople to design and build an innovative temporary structure; an EcoLab, for public meetings and workshops at Tramore Valley Park.
The EcoLab will be a focal point of architectural importance for this new public park, built on a remediated landfill site.
It’s envisaged that The KinShip EcoLab will enhance the sense of connection between the people of Cork and the wider community of life that inhabit Tramore Valley Park. This open competition provides the space to alter our thinking about the relationship we have with the natural world, to address the legacy of ‘throw away’ culture and to engage with new modes of construction.
The competition will launch in March 2022. The construction of the Eco Lab will take place in Summer 2022 in time to launch an exciting Autumn/Winter programme of activities.
