Dun Laoghaire, on the one hand, needed a new  library, but could not afford to lose more of its  parks. We could give the city both!  The duality in the sheet interior and exterior  surfaces creates a unique link between park and the library. The park emergence and takes shape with gentle slopes of new paths across the park and public spaces.

From the park you get a fantastic view over Dublin and the sea beyond. It is a recreational grass area to play and stay - a place you would look for.

While wandering through the park or our main foyer "Agora" - a wealth of new experiences awaits visitors in Dun Laoghaire
