As part of the ongoing development of the historic centre of Kilkenny City, GKMP architects created a plaza and kiosk on the pedestrian approach to Kilkenny Castle. One side of the kiosk is given over to an information ‘lightwall’, which we designed.
On it are detailed maps of the city and county, on which destinations of note are highlighted. Each destination has a short bilingual description, GPS co-ordinates and a map key. At the castle end of the lightwall there is a short local history, and a screen to show topical information regarding news, festivals and events. The familiar visual language of directional signage is extended to the iconic depiction of the destinations.
