Crampton court feels the love- Love the Lanes
Love the Lanes was a joint initiative between Dublin City Council and the Temple Bar Company. The goal was to reactivate the many lanes in the Temple Bar area for people to use and enjoy, through creative intervention.
Over the years, many of these lanes have fallen into disuse and become magnets for anti-social behaviour. The project was kick-started by calling upon the public for new ideas. The response was remarkable and showed a real desire to bring life back into the lanes in this historic part of the city. The main focus for the project was Adair and Bedford Lanes, Copper Alley and Crampton Court.
10 proposals were shortlisted, amongst them the transformation of the ground in Crampton Court into a colourful urban carpet. Various proposals and designs were drawn up and it was finally decided to continue the love theme in this lane, by creating beautiful, colourful love hearts as the canvas for the ground.
