Wayne Rooney hires architect to design shed

Postby onq » Tue Nov 22, 2011 6:30 pm

In the wake of the contretemps at the last RIAI Annual bash wherein a difference of opinion was expressed over whether Irish architects should now look abroad or concentrate on developing markets here, we note this story in BD Online

One can clearly see the need for a bigger shed from this site layout plan where it is inadequate to the needs of the site

England striker brings in Pulmann Associates to replace existing shed with one three times the size

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has hired Pulmann Associates Architects to design him a new garden shed.


So there you have it - just as an Irish lady heads up the RIBA we read a timely reminder of work beckoning from beyond the Irish sea.

I wish you luck, the UK market is harder to crack than here.

On the other hand, I've always found it strange how so many UK companies have managed to break into the Irish market?

Its something I've never tried exporting my talent post graduation before.

Looking forward to making the attempt in the next twelve.

Now seems to be a pretty good time to do it!

One of ours is the professor at Queens.

Another is head of the RIBA

Seriously, if you are only considering it now then you are way out of the loop.

trust me, working in the UK is a very different ball game.

Obviously I'm out of the loop.

If I was in the loop I'd be over there already.

Anything constructive to add to this thread on beautiful shed design?

Or perhaps some droplets of wisdom about working in the UK could drip from your fevered brow... :angel:
