Giant's Causeway Visitors' CentreEdit profile
The Giant’s Causeway lies in Northern Ireland’s Causeway Coast World Heritage Site, a landscape of cliffs formed by hexagonal basalt stones, agricultural landscapes and cliffside walks. Utilising the large difference in level across the site, two folds are created in the landscape. One, extending the line of the ridge, accommodates the building. The second, extending the level of the road, screens the car park from view.
The two folds create strong lines in the landscaping, drawing all the man-made interventions together and organising the disparate requirements of the Visitorsʼ Centre into a singular intervention in the landscape.
There is no longer a building and landscape but building becomes landscape and the landscape itself remains spectacular and iconic.
