i have to say rory, that i think the railings are about more than the workers feeling slightly uneasy on their way up the steps to work. without being over the top i think they represent an attitude towards the city. what was a very popular civic space is railed off and privatised. whats more important the feelings of a few suits (who didnt really have to go near the bums with the width of those steps) or the value of in my opinion the best public space we had? aside from that i think the design is one of the most woeful peices of urban design this side of the eighties. if you want to see some my work there is a picture in the property section of last wednesdays irish times. ooo the mystery!
