The Viking Triangle
Consultation | Planning
Waterford City & County Council wanted to animate the landscape within the compact Viking Triangle Heritage Quarter, marketed as ‘Vikings to Victorians: 1,000 years of history in 1,000 paces’. New interpretation would connect existing visitor attractions including the Bishop’s Palace, Reginald’s Tower (Viking Museum) and the newly completed Waterford Museum of Treasures (Medieval Museum). My work with Bright identified visitor routes, key entrance points, interpretive opportunities and unifying themes and characters. Interpretation took the form of signage and artistic features at key entrances, including a full-sized Viking longship! Tours were developed for both digital technology and live actors depicting historic characters. Storytelling for these tours is chronological, taking visitors on a journey from Viking times to the 19th century, stopping at key architectural landmarks along the way.
