Reply To: Smithfield, Dublin
Large civic spaces, can work!!!
Travelling throughout the South of France, I was fortunate enough to see beautiful, well planned towns. French planners have a vision, a grand design. Why not think bold in Dublin.
Smithfield square could extend to the Law society. I’m sure our French couterparts wouldn’t be afraid of such a challenge.
The trick is to engage the human element and to enable access. e.g. (Underground carparking beneth the square; Improved public transport; Walkways and lighting to the market areas; Tax incentives to open retail and entertainment outlets. Clustering of activities.
Why not copy the French?
