That's a cute drawing. Who did that?

That was a skecth done by the architects in response to the Bord Pleanala decision on saving the extra building on Sth Leinster Street meaning a shorter elevation.

As you can see it's fairly short and even heavy looking without the extra length provided by the next plot.

BTW, has anyone seen a proper image of the new facade?

And for those who want to see it, there is a model of the new building in the foyer of the NGI [until recently anyway, it may be gone].

Any chance of a photo of the model?
