Reply To: Smithfield, Dublin
Why is it that any plans for any kind of poxy high rise building in Dublin are immediately shot down by an taisce and scared locals as if the devil himself was the architect….the proposed building is not even that bloody tall, the square is large and can take the impact of the proposed building. Rounding such a large square with nothing but 4 story featureless crap would be awful. The proposed building is mildly radical and has already met with such extreme opposition no wonder nearly every new development in dublin is pathetically mediocre. As previously mentioned any shadows cast on to the square will have a small impact due to the sun setting in the west. Does everything built in dublin have to be so bloody boring….i am waiting to hear what jk suggests should be built on the west side of the square.
