U2 studio entries

U2 studio entries

Postby Andrew Duffy » Thu May 29, 2003 9:49 am

I'm not sure if architects are supposed to publish their entries in this competition, but this one did:

http://www.doonanarchitects.com/dublin.htm

It's better than the picture the Sunday Times published (architect unknown):

Does anyone know of any other published entries?

If there is any problem publishing in advance, just delete this thread. Anyway, Here's another:

Not sure about that one.

Some of them are a bit conventional and some are a bit whacky .....but I suppose a whacky one would be the option to catch the eye and enliven this new dull area of the city.

Is that Italian one a serious entry?????
Anyway generally the "out-there" ones aren't too bad, at least there interesting. That first one is not worth the link!

The first one is *yawn*....so boring.
the italian entry does nothing for me. i like the one that was publishd in the Sunday Times, but i'd be very surprised if it won.

the mongelli one is certainly interesting, and would be a great landmark building, but i would like something a little more substantial, a bit taller for the U2 Tower.

at 60metres though, i think the design is going to have to be a bit radical for it to remain a "landmark building". while 60m may be tall for Dublin, it certainly isn't in world terms, and that height alone will not justify it's landmark title.

60m is a crap height, especially for the dreary area the "tower" is going up in and since there's planning permission around the corner for a 90 odd metre building the "landmark" tag will be hard to live up to - unless they go for some totally wild design, that is.

Anonymous Competions!

Postby MOL » Thu Jun 19, 2003 11:41 pm

The U2 Landmark Tower Competition is in all respects an anonymous competition and if therefore an architect decides to publish his work premature to the decision of the competition jury, he of course has given up his anonymous position and clearly must be disqualified.

Thanks lads, cue email from one architect with fragile ego

"Earlier today, I sent you images for your website as you requested. However, I have just read some of the discussion threads posted on your website and am rather offended by the comments about our submission to the Landmark Tower / U2 competition. Therefore, I formally request that you do not publish any of the images or text from our submission."

I was listening to Samy talk about the Calatrava documentary this morning on radio. I have never, ever seen one architect do a really good criticism of another.

Where is the Eamon Dunphy of good architectural journalistic criticism? Someone who is just so naive, they say things that everyone else is just too scared S******* to say? Or will there ever be a time in Ireland when someone like that can speak up about anything?

I respect the attitude you have shown Paul, and your motivation to make information available - even if 90% will always be kept under wraps.

Update on DDDA website today...

"Due to the unprecedented response to the competition with over 500 entries, the assessment process has taken longer than originally anticipated. However, the jury is continuing its work and when it makes its decision, the result will be published and posted here on our website. "

I can't say I'm surprised they had to revise their date.

Well, let's not judge the judges too harshly, at least until we see which one they go for :).

This has been a very high profile competition - I know of at least two of the better Canadian firms who were considering entering, not sure if they went through with it. It's quite possible they've got a large number of compelling schemes to assess.

I agree, I'd prefer if they spent more time at it and made the right decision then rush at it now.

Less of the begrudgery please.....

I think the judges took less time to decide the winning entries for the replacement of the World Trade Centre.
The result of the U2 competition here better be good.

Once they had it down to the shortlist of five, yes. Kind of my point :)
