Naïve and Sentimental

Dermot Foley

This is the second PRS presentation. A number of projects have been identified as having potential for demonstrating change and innovation. New ways of practising are being explored using recently commissioned projects as well as projects historic to the office, which have been kick-started and reassessed as part of the PhD process. Adamstown Public Parks, almost a decade after the initial design competition is ‘live’ again within the practice, but the economic, social and physical context has changed. The project offers an opportunity for a new approach to design, which will exploit the evolution of the site. The extent to which the new design proposals are plausible from the point of view of landowner and community is being tested.
