–Irish Limestone

A monument dedicated to Irish famine immigrants who settled in Upper Canada. The historical monument holds 675 of 1,100 names honouring those who did not survive the journey – they are forever engraved in the Irish limestone.

The design goal to mimic the eroded Irish shoreline required the structure to consist of a combination of poured concrete, reinforced masonry, structural stone and unique stone anchors to support the various complex cantilevers. Outside the box engineering and creative design resulted in an outstanding monument.
