Go and see the small exhibition of Ian Ritchie's proposed spine at the Corporation Buildings, Wood Quay, Dublin, if you can. It's beautifully detailed and will, I believe, be a beautiful monument. The comments on weather it has a meaning or resonance with Dublin and Ireland is interesting and troubling.. My only question is why the great height? Twice the height of Nelson's Pillar would have been fine (allowing for its slenderness,
proportions and modern possibilities) but three times?? Why?
