DUBLIN | The Granby Park

On my way back home from the shooting session yesterday afternoon I noticed something very interesting nearby the Ilac - it was the park in the city centre.

Quote:
Granby Park, is an urban, ‘pop-up’ park in a currently vacant site in Dublin’s inner city. It is made from up-cycled, recycled, donated and found material and features some of the city’s most talented artists, architects, performers, planners etc. It will have an outdoor cinema, a theatre made by kids from palettes, an education zone, exhibitions, a play area, a café, art installations, and lots, lots more!


For the last two years Upstart have been working on our plan to develop this new project with the help and support from number people including Dublin City Council, planners, architects, landscape architects, designers, research and education groups and the local community. Everyone has given their time and services for free and everything we do is voluntary. We have the full support of Dublin city council and will be starting the reconstruction of the site in late July 2013.
From The Granby Park website

21 August 2013 WEDNESDAY













To be continued.

Anyway, it's a great idea, the site was a wasteland for years..and right in city centre!

Yes, indeed. There were corporation houses over there before they got demolished and the area is going to be redeveloped. I like this idea as well.

It featured on Six One News today, the final piece after the market shares report.

Opens this evening but sadly only stays open for a month

Hopefully it stays open longer, these 'pop-up' ventures have a tendency to be extended if they're popular. I don't see why not, the place was a wasteland before, no reason the park has go to until there's movement with development.

That looks great! Love the creativeness of some of the sections.
