function auditorium, congress centre
contributed by ArchDublin

When Dublin Civic Offices were built in the 1970s, sections of the Viking City Walls were discovered on the site. Some of these were sealed into a double height basement room for 30 years. The project creates a sequence of modern conference rooms within this volume by decisive intervention. The medieval wall is extended on its original line by a corridor, a hollowed-out space whose external dimension matches that of the old wall - solid become void. The rest of the architecture is made as an undulating timber wall and ceiling, folded up to fill the double height space and offer a view of the old wall from a new public entrance. City Wall Space is a meeting and conference facility with a capacity for up to 200 people (120 seated).
