Jewel on the Garavogue

We are delighted to be working with Sligo County Council to design a sculptural centrepiece for the new Sligo Cultural Plaza.

Located in the centre of town on the banks of the beautiful Garavogue River; Sligo Cultural Plaza will transform a town centre car park into a vibrant outdoor space which will offer a dynamic events programme and act as a central focus for many of Sligo‚Äôs attractions such as Sligo Abbey, Sligo Gaol and the Yeats building.

The circle is a recurring form that is intrinsic to the DNA of Sligo. Represented through the iconic Pilot House to the ancient borough boundary stones, and mythological landscape monuments, the concept proposes an urban intervention that is conceptually symbolic to the Sligo region.
