It is a scar on the face of Dublin,
an oozing sore that no-one can ignore,
an insult to the architectural harmony of our fair city.
Other buildings in Dublin are ugly but at least they can be more easily ignored, Liberty Hall shows up no matter where you are in the city centre. It cannot be avoided, it attracts attention to itself by its tallness.
Dublin is basically a low rise city, this helps keep buildings to a comfortable height, creating a more humane environment (unlike New York which is a city not fit for human habitation).
Whoever thought that sticking a tower block in the middle of Dublin was a good idea should be stripped of their architectural licience and publicly humiliated. Better still, as long as it remains standing the building should be renamed after the architect responsible. Thus his name would become a synonymn for uglyness for the lifetime of the building.
P.S. I'm surprised that the worst planning decision ever made in Dublin is not mentioned at all in the poll ; Ballymun
When they finally knock those monstrosities down they should pay the lads a bit extra to do Liberty Hall at the same time
