Im Zuge einer Modernisierung des denkmalgeschützten Milk Markets in Limerick wurde eine Membranüberdachung entworfen, um zum einen den lokalen Bauernmarkt vor Witterungseinflüssen zu schützen, aber gleichzeitig der Atmosphäre eines Freiluftmarktes nahe zu kommen. Um die Nutzbarkeit des Platzes zu optimieren, wird die 1400 m2 große Membranüberdachung lediglich durch einen exzentrisch angeordneten Mast unterstützt und ist zu den vier Eckpunkten des Innenhofes hin abgespannt, ohne dabei die denkmalgeschützte Bebauung zu berühren.

Membrane canopy for the preserved Milk Market in Limerick, Ireland.
A membrane canopy has been designed for the historic milk market courtyard in Limerick as part of the refurbishment efforts in order to enable the local farmers market to take place independently from environmental influences but still achieve an outdoor ambience. To optimize the usability of the 1400 m2 covered area, the membrane is supported by just one eccentrically aligned mast and is suspended to the four corners of the courtyard without touching any of the preserved structures.
