005 GALWAY PIER

Competition entry for a new Pier for the city of Galway, Ireland

2012
Competition entry for a new Pier for the city of Galway, Ireland. The idea was to create a building that would disappear under a veil of water, where water would become the material of the building. A huge cantilevers slab creates a 12 m water drop directly into the sea, making the building become a architectural event.
