It's odd that your attachment to gritty urbanism didn't extend to the Loopline bridge:

We'll see what elegance bulky containers add. I just hope nobody hurts themselves on the cutting edge.

Harry Crosbie and the Dublin Docklands Development Authority (DDDA) are at loggerheads over new plans for land beside the O2.
The developer has applied to Dublin City Council to be allowed to set up a temporary performance and market area at the Point Village Square on East Wall Road.
He also wants to install exhibition spaces, all in structures built from shipping containers.
However, the DDDA has written to the council outlining its strong objections to the plan.
The authority said it believes it is important to provide "quality public open space at early stages in the development of an area".
It added that the "proposal is unacceptable in terms of the material finishes proposed".
The DDDA said: "The proposed temporary development is not in the spirit of policies set out in the Dublin Docklands Master Plan 2008 or the North Lotts Planning Scheme."
A submission from Amphitheatre Ireland Ltd, the operator of the O2, said it considers the proposal would have a "significant negative impact" on the venue.
