Causeway Interpretive Centre designer named

The BBC reports that the National Trust (NI) has announced that design company Event Communications will create the interiors of the now approved interpretive centre at the Giant’s Causeway, as designed by Dublin-based architects Heneghan Peng. Although efforts to raise the required additional £2.25million appear to be slow. And, with the rival developer’s objections dropped, I expect some supernaturalists will continue to push the issue of the material available at the World Heritage site.

    And we can but hope that those interiors are accessible to all – including deaf and blind visitors – as it is NI premier heritage site.

    From the BBC report:

    “Max Bryant, National Trust property manager for the North Coast said the design would have three key themes – “Science, Myth and Man.” ”

    No mention of God, I note. Or maybe that’ll be covered by the Myth bit.

    Don’t we have even an approximate date for when the builder, the boul Finn, lived?

    No Jone, that’ll be under science if the creationists get their way. Sickening.

  • “the rival developer’s objections dropped,”

    The Rival has just submitted new Causeway related plans:

    0281/F Tramway Halt Bushmills Station Ballaghmore Road Bushmills.

    Proposed railway halt to include commercial facilities (cafe, ticket office, toilets, office and kitchen spaces) and 2 apartments above

    Visitors will be able to park in Bushmills and begin their Grand Causeway Experience there.

    Now why didn’t someone think of that earlier and spare us the expense of a pink elephant on the Causeway headland?

    Now the centre design is finalised, the interior designers appointed, and work due to start in the new year how about a working party to look at all the surrounding environment? We will currently end up with a World Class facility surrounded by dilapidated fences and hedgerows, obliterated by a plethora of disparate signage and unvisitable due to the local road network being unable to cope with the bottleneck which occurs when cars, coaches and lorries try to enter or leave the car park.
