Reply To: critical Irish architectural journalism
i agree with the praise for tom de paor for the criticism on the concrete house in navan. it was a breath of fresh air in that it was a departue from the bland pleasantries which are usually bestowed on ‘achitecture’ in that magazine the IRish Architect. i also want to vent my spleen on this one. why is this magazine such a load of crap? why , for example, do they always print a wholly inappropriate image on the cover?for example, did anyone see the issue which featured the gate cinema by derek tynan, which is quite a decent building but the front cover shot was of an entirely indistinguishable bit of wall with something stuck to it. why do they always publish such totally boring commercial pap as the last issue ie. the STW industrial stuff, and why oh why can they not get some mor decent writers?
