Posted by Darkman FFS how many times do I have to point this out: This thread is NOT about high-rise
I agree you have mentioned it a number of times... but everyone keeps harking back to discussing high-rises. Which in a kind of roundabout way gives you the answer to your question...
What has been built during the boom that is 'extraordinary'? Why has our failure occurred?
note everyone he didnâ€™t say What high-rise
has been built...
The naysayers on the thread who denied our abject failure in urban development pretty quickly fell away, leaving one to draw only one conclusion..that you were right, we have in fact failed . Then the question is why and given the underwhelming amount of vision, creative ideas, impetus and a myopic focus on those HRs, in response to your initial post, Id argue maybe we failed because we were never capable of succeeding in the first place given a numer of circumstances. Some within the control of the Irish design world some outside their control. Among other things I believe the talent existed, but I donâ€™t believe it was ever nurtured properly, the pool of talent is too incestuous in Irl, too much from the same school of training (literally) bit like a madras in a way, add to that the corruption, a laziness born from a newly acquired 'nouveau riche' lifestyle, a general demise in breakthrough developments of vision worldwide..and thatâ€™s a recipe for the general crap you saw about you on that drive through Dublin
Question is what y'all going todo about it ? Hope your thread has stirred some momentum, theres been a lot of good input and a couple of great suggestions Id love to see get a chance but I wouldnâ€™t call it overwhelming.
Did someone mention Dubai here... we are discussing sound ecological contemporary developments here arent we .....2005 data
The five nations with the largest per capita ecological deficits (negative ecological balances) are the United Arab Emirates (-21
3), Kuwait (-146), the United States (-89), Belgium & Luxembourg (-62) and Netherlands (-56).

For some reason, I feel you know.
No I donâ€™t know please give me an example and I will accept your point otherwise stop implying I plagarised.
I could handle it if it was only that but your insinuation is also implying I plagiarised from a moron which I canâ€™t stand for.
