Dublin 2020

Dublin 2020

Postby icim » Thu Oct 07, 2004 10:31 am

At Irish Construction Industry Magazine we are looking at what Dublin might look like in 2020. How will the skyline change? How will the city change? Does anyone have artists impressions of the future city? Or of planned buildings?

Have a look at the thread that is linked below:

I personally think that the area around the Pigeon House is the area that is most likely for real high rise, but maybe not by 2020.

The following is entirely tongue-in-cheek

The suggestion by Dublin City Planners for gateways to the city will be taken literally. A fear of all modern design, will mean that already existing structures will be slavishly copied.

Dublin will have a metro.....

The Phoenix Park will be under threat from the new city of Castleknock-Blanchardstown....

Image


SIPTU will sell Liberty Hall to the new ruling government of Sinn Fein, who promptly decide that the building should reflect Irish vernacular architecture....

Not Dublin or Ireland, but a universal future...

Where will we be living come 2020? In beautiful bespoke homes or in soulless suburban estates? The choice is ours, says Jonathan Glancey

We will have two world class stadiums with Landsdowne built and Croke Park finished.

Any chance of throwing some money down shannonside for a refit of Thomond Park?

I love the Liberty Hall pics Paul, Pure Class
