hello to you all.

i heard recently that there are plans for several high-rise buildings in the city of dublin. the same goes for outer parts of the city. i am the type that doesn't have a problem with building up, i just hope that if they build up the buildings will look good and blend in with the surrounding area. so many plans but where does one go to see actual pictures? i want to be able to see these pans for myself. this is my first time to speak on this site so can anyone give me website addresses and so on? i am just far too busy to call into places and get the info myself. i have to say before i go, this is an excellent site for chat on architecture in ireland. i like it.

cheers.

Was on my way to Dockers recently and noticed the wonderful view on the other side of the liffey, Liberty Hall, then the Customs House and various bits of IFSC all make for a really interesting sky line, tall (ish) buildings with space in between and low bits, it looks great.

But then you look further down the keys and it looks so boring and plain, nothing stands out.

ah yes. i also look at how the city is and i have to say it is a nice looking city. i love the view from ameins street for example. ok i know some parts of it are run down but it's the same in some other countries and i guess it can't be helped. i love how the city skyline looks from most parts but i also understand that cities do need to change. however the city is changing with lots of plans and so on. i understand this from what i hear and see. i hope that in a few years the docklands will be developed and that it will be something different for all of us. i can't remember the last time i was in the dockland area. it does seem so empty and that is why i think this is the perfect area to build a new part to the city. it could be a high-rise area yes with the current areas in the lower part left low. that way we could have our old dublin and our new dublin. just a thought.
