This Is Not Central Bank / Res Publica





The Central Bank seized for civic use has the capacity to create a dialogue between civic space and civic function.

In light of Central Bank operations moving to the docklands, there is an opportunity to begin a public debate on the future occupation of this Stephenson, Gibney and Associates building; an icon that espouses the inherent optimism of modernism.

Feeding off this optimism, the contents of the exhibition act as a framework for ideas and invite the viewer to imagine a new public life for this building.

How would you occupy this space?
