It is not impossible to conserve historical architecture without damaging its integrity in any way. Modern and old can be tastefully and unpretentiously bound together. The perfect example is the Waterford Museum.
The Medieval Museum has won Best Public Building in the RIAI Awards in Dublin on Tuesday 24th June 2014, and there has been a Highly Commended Award for the public realm works in the Viking Triangle.
