what would you demolish?

Dublin Airport's main terminal, Lower Mount Street's office blocks, and Hume House in Ballsbridge are among the buildings identified by Irish architects as prime for demolition. However, unlike Cedric Price, most regard the bulldozers as a last resort and believe even the eye-sores aren't beyond repair.

"It's not a sustainable position to keep knocking down and rebuilding," says Eoin Ó Cofaigh, president of the Royal Institute of Architects of Ireland. As much as half of all landfill waste is accounted for by demolition rubble, he notes. "We should be looking to reduce not increase that amount of waste."

A lot of the lego town junk around Christchurch. DDFH&B and Jury's for a start.

Remember the lovely terracotta tiles on the CIE building where Jury's now stands?
