Reply To: skyline
I hope you didn’t think I was ranting at you. I do agree with what you say although this wanton destruction of historically and aesthetically interesting buildings is of great concern to me in Dublin.
That proposed new building opposite the Custom’s house? What are they thinking? Remember how Sam Stephenson’s WoodQuay things looked like giant alien anti-tank-barriers dropped indiscriminately from the sky – I swear, it looks like they just covered their eyes and let them fall missing Christchurch by a whisker.
Anyway, I’m not academically qualified to get into an architectural rant but I’ve got eyes in my head.
I think what’s left of Dublin’s skyline should be respected – even perhaps Hawkin’s House as an interesting example of crappiness.
