Abstract [en]

Located in the Harbour of Cork, this work encourages the Harbour to turn back upon itself and re-establish the collective memory of transport by water. It was inspired by the Harbour Authority’s decision to introduce a passenger

ferry network, servicing the City and the towns along the harbour. The meeting of the people and their harbour is to be finely nuanced through new installations, which facilitate the landing of these new vessels. Without these comprehensible points, which together create boundaries and act as threshold, the harbour is immense and continually

shifting. These interventions intend to create a middle space between the landscape edge and the vast harbour: a type of ‘airlock’ which prepares the pedestrian for passage, using tools of sequencing and reframing to direct views.

The project is investigated through mapping with an architecture that addresses the shifting scale along the harbour and a conversation begins between the macro and microcosm.
