Reply To: Dublin’s Ugliest Building
It is important to see the apartment building opposite the Four Seasons on North King Street to have a real understanding of how bad Dublin architecture can get.
If this was described to someone with a very poor visualisation ability they might be tricked into believing that the building is a sensitive addition to a largely 18th century area – it has all the ingredients: brickwork, not too high a parapet, imitation sash windows (white), ‘feature’ buttressing. This must be what happened to the planner involved.
Please let everybody take a look at this recent building and swear – NEVER AGAIN.
