1883 – Design for National Museum, Dublin

0007

An unexecuted design after an architectural competition to design a complex of museum and library around Leinster House (then part of the Royal Dublin Society). This proposal included a columned screen along Kildare Street and replacing the gateway by Cassels with a more ornate design. The results of the original architecture competition were scrapped after it was found out that all the entrants were “minor” English architects including E.W. Godwin. Eventually Thomas Newenham Deane was selected as architect.
