    DESCRIPTION

     

    Moyross was constructed in 1970 on the outskirts of Limerick City as a solution to a growing housing crisis. After the initial years of hope and optimism passed, Moyross began to slip into a cycle of anti-social behaviour, gang crime and ultimately, murder. In 2007, a programme of infrastructural and social resource ‘Regeneration’ was proposed as a solution for the estate.

    Soon after, in the hope of kick-starting a process of physical, socio-cultural, and economic renewal, this programme of ‘Regeneration’ began. Streets of families were displaced and relocated, the bulldozers moved in, and house demolitions and topographical restructuring began.

    Moyross Study investigates this dramatic transformation in the topography of Moyross, attempting to communicate the everyday human-feelings and experiences that are connected to the forced transition of Moyross from a densely populated open plan estate, to an enclosed, penal like space.
