Killybegs PlaySpace site:
The promoters are seeking to make this one stage architectural competition an exemplar for commissioning play spaces and to this end, the IAF has initiated a detailed and comprehensive consultation process with the children, parents and playground committee in Killybegs.
The PlaySpace is an Architectural Public Art Commission made possible by a partnership funding arrangement utilising the Per Cent for Art Scheme budget, a disability budget and a budget secured by the Killybegs Playground Committee. The competition is open to architects and architect-led design teams.
Once a competitor registers to take part in the competition, they have until 21 February 2011 to submit their entries. Each entry will consist of one A1 size sheet of information. The construction budget for the PlaySpace is €65,000 and a prize fund of €6,000 is available. The winners of the competition will be announced at the end of March 2011.
Further information on the competition is available on the RIAI website: www.riai.ie/competitions/detail/killybegs_playspace_architectural_design_competition/
