RIAI launches Centenary Chapel design contest

The Royal Institute of Architects in Ireland has begun an international contest to design a chapel commemorating the 1916 rising in co-operation with the Glasnevin Trust

Open to architect led teams, the single stage contest is to design and build a ‘high quality’ Centenary Chapel designed in relation to an existing neighbouring monument.

Envisaged as ‘a peaceful, contemplative space’ the Centenary Chapel will commemorate the 232 who lost their lives in the 1916 rising.

An entry fee of £103 is due with each submission, though entrants with second thoughts have until 1 November to withdraw their submission and receive a refund.

A maximum budget of £2.5 million has been announced for the construction plus fit-out.

Registration must be completed before 29 November through the RIAI dedicated page. Final submissions are expected by 18 December.
