There are very pleasant innovations: a cafe, a bar, kiddies areas, even merchandising. Eamon O'Kane has managed to integrate one of his contributions into this context, with his ingenious and interactive take on Froebel. There's lots of video, forcing the usual calculation of how much time you have and how much you're willing to invest. Jaki Irvine has a fine-looking, high-projected piece that works well in its context. For appropriate positioning I also like how Wendy Judge's piece comes off, garretted and semi-sinister.
