An online poll has been set up (HERE) to allow the public a chance to vote for their favourite design. Voting ends on June 14.

Louise Cotter is originally from St Brendan’s Park and has designed a number of projects in Kerry including the Solas Building for ITT, Ballyroe Heights Hotel and a number of houses in West Kerry and Killarney.

The Irish Architecture Awards recognise the best buildings across 16 categories and all shortlisted buildings go forward for the Public Choice Award.

The dlr Lexicon Library cost €27.5 million to build and was the subject of intense controversy in the run-up to last years’s local elections.

However, since opening the building has been extremely popular with locals and visitors, receiving over 10,000 visitors a week.
