This competition entry creates a new external performance space for Dublin. Sitting alongside the O2 arena the ‘Magic Lantern’ creates a destination for the new linkage of spaces in this area of Dublin connected by a tram system which terminates here spilling its contents into the new square.
The device is essentially a light show which contains the space
for audience and performers while simultaneously bringing the
square to life. Being a temporary structure the Lantern can be
reassembled anywhere in the city in future years.
