Clones Centre for Alternative Heritage
Clones Centre for Alternative Heritage is a subdivided and scattered Cultural Centre that consists of 3 edifices: the main building, the Café and the Bus Stop. This cultural centre celebrates the commonplace, the ordinary and the vernacular, stressing the characteristics of what is local to Clones.
This project is an exploration of “identity” and “heritage” in the context of an Irish border town. Such a complex, compromising and destabilising geopolitical position nonetheless forged the town’s identity.
Therefore, this scheme stresses the significance of the alternative heritage (consisting of the objects, landscapes, buildings and experiences of the everyday that constitute the identity of a place), as an additional layer to the authorised heritage (what we know as traditional, historic and institutionalised).
Clones Centre for Alternative Heritage acts as a vehicle for the people of the town and the surrounding communities to express themselves, to reflect on the past, the present and to imagine the future.
