Schwartz_Grand_Canal_Square_01

This month the eyes of the world are on Dublin’s Grand Canal Square, designed by landscape architects and urban designers Martha Schwartz Partners (MSP), as client the Dublin Docklands Authority achieves a milestone in their ambitious redevelopment of the city’s long-neglected waterfront.

The opening of Studio Daniel Libeskind’s Grand Canal Theater will fully activate the two-and-a-half-acre Grand Canal Square, allowing the former industrial site to serve as its designers at MSP intended—as the connective tissue between the theater and adjacent new construction, and as the new cultural and commercial epicenter of the city.

Says Martha Schwartz, President of MSP, “Our objective in the Grand Canal Square scheme was to create a vibrant, energetic space that would flow naturally into the dynamic and expressive volume of Liebeskind’s theater.” MSP has created a public amenity that is emblematic of Dublin’s optimism, fulfilling the mission of the Dublin Docklands Development Authority to revitalize the edge of the River Liffey and give it back to the people of the city.

image004The Center for Urban Waters is a 51,000 square-foot environmental services and research laboratory. The building will house government and higher education groups that collaborate on policy making, research and enforcement designed to address the pollution problems facing urban communities. It is located in Tacoma on the east shore of Thea Foss Waterway with unobstructed views of downtown.

After years of planning and complex construction, the City of Tacoma and its project partners have begun moving into the Center for Urban Waters. The building and its research labs intend to have an important impact on the restoration of Puget Sound and the revitalization of an economically depressed area. This public/private partnership will house labs for research initially focused on urban storm water run-off and finding the best tools to reduce it. Storm water run-off is the single largest pollution problem in Puget Sound. The labs will also be used by the City of Tacoma for ongoing and regularly scheduled water and air testing.
