Office of Public Works Commission: HIV and AIDS National Monument

The Office of Public Works invites expressions of interest to create a HIV and AIDS national monument. The site proposed for the monument is the People’s Gardens in the Phoenix Park which will be its permanent location. The competition is open to individuals and project teams and to professional and nonprofessional applicants.

A committee, chaired by the Department of the Taoiseach, was established to oversee the design and commissioning of the monument. The competition is being organised and administered on behalf of the committee by the Office of Public Works.

The purpose of the commission is ‘to remember those who have died and mark their lives and contribution to society, while also showing solidarity with those living with and affected by HIV today’.

Please read the brief for further details about the commission and location.


The financial value of the commission will be negotiated by the OPW with the winner of the competition but shall not exceed €200,000 (including VAT and all applicable taxes).
