The International Architectural Competition is open to regional, national and international practitioners of architecture and art. Proposals are invited for a poetic architectural intervention for the island of Innisfree which will mediate between Yeats’ poetic vision and contemporary architectural ideas.
The award value is €30,000 and the winning design will be constructed on the island for 13th June 2015, as a realisation of Yeats’ vision – a gift on his 150th birthday.
