2nd place in Dublin Bridge Competition


Recently, AKT II and architects Weston Williamson + Partners came second in a competition to design a new memorial bridge in Dublin.

We supported Weston Williamson + Partners’ design for the new bridge in Islandbridge, Dublin. Launched in November 2018 by the Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland (RIAI) and the Office of Public Works, the competition was opened up to architects worldwide to design a new bridge for the Irish National War Memorial Gardens in Dublin.

Out of 61 architectural practice entries, from 9 different countries, Weston Williamson + Partners’ design was shortlisted and came in a close second place.

‘The judges admired this clever three girder cantilever design…giving a view through the bridge structure to the river below while also providing a place for pause and reflection before entering the Memorial garden.’ - Comments from the Judging Panel.
