The Giant’s Causeway is a UNESCO heritage site and the participants were called to
design a visitor’s centre. The proposal aimed at incorporating the new building with
the heritage site by being a “live” information centre excavated to the point where
the rock formations could be seen. The building is characterized by two different
facades, one symbolizing the myth behind Giant’s Causeway while the other is in
contact with the current “reality”.
