College Green, Dublin


Dixon Jones and Dublin based Paul Keogh Architects have been commissioned by Dublin City Council to redesign College Green as a pedestrian priority plaza.

Defined by the splendid elevations of the Bank of Ireland and Trinity College, College Green has been a setting for civic life in Dublin for over 500 years, however the expansive space portrayed in historic illustrations has become the noisy traffic dominated streetscape of today.  Dixon Jones and PKA’s proposal aims to reclaim College Green as a world class urban space, a venue for events and performances and a setting for civic and social life.

A (planning) application was submitted in May 2016 and construction is scheduled to start in 2017.
