The architect of a planned European-style book market on Grattan Bridge has appealed to the public to suspend judgment on the project until it is finished. Capel Street art gallery owner, Mr Gerald Davis, has complained to Dublin City Council that four new kiosks intended as elaborate book stalls were "totally out of place" and amounted to "visual vandalism" of views of the Liffey. However Mr Dave Richards, of Gilroy McMahon architects, said the kiosks were "like a piano with its lid down" at present. "They have to be seen with their panels opened out and awnings down."
