Waterford Cultural Quarter Crafts Market Co-Design Project


Project Description 

The WCQ Crafts Market Co-Design project aims to bring together the diverse local community of the Cultural Quarter to collaboratively envision and design a flexible ‘pop-up’ weekend crafts market, with the support of WIT Architecture students and a co-design and architecture team.


It is envisioned that the crafts market would pop-up to take place on a small section of O’Connell Street that is currently pedestrianised at the weekends, to further encourage activity in the area that celebrates the Cultural Quarter’s rich diversity and supports local shops and businesses.


This project is part of the Irish Architecture Foundation’s Reimagine Programme – with key local partners including the Waterford Cultural Quarter, Waterford City & County Council, WIT School of Architecture and the Waterford Area Partnership.


Community engagement experts Connect the Dots and architect and designer Rae Moore, of Atelier Rae Studio, have been commissioned to lead the co-design process on this project. WIT Architecture students are deeply involved through their research of market design precedents and development of concept designs and prototypes in communication with the community’s insights, ideas and feedback being gathered throughout the process.
