People hark on about Georgian vistas etc…..because they were designed with the most fundamental tenet of urban design, with symmetry and focal points in mind…..which is why Modernism failed at times too. If you look at the rejuvenation of O’Connell Street these tenets or principles are being applied in a way …ie the positioning of the Spire, the specific landscaping and planting of trees and placement of furniture, the widening of the foothpaths etc… This is whats at the core of good urban design. A lot can be learned from such classical times that can be applied today (and not just in a pastiche Post Modernist sense or style)
