Dublin city scape - Artastic - Cead Mile Future
This was the city scape in the pageant. Moving away from the stereotypical image of a future of metallic buildings the children imagined a very colourful cityscape that was designed for people walking rather than cars. The buildings were influenced by the shape of our old round towers, but with a very funky difference. Although they hoped that in the future Irish people would speak mainly Irish, they conceived of multi Lingual interactive statues for the tourist to get directions from. These were commonly called ‘Giggle Guides’. To get around the city they imagined you get a E-taxi which was an environmentally friendly robot pedal power vehicle. Or you could jump on the sky luas, which helped you see the Spire from great heights as you head down over Phoenix park to see the jaw dropping Dublin Zoo.
