Yeah, i saw the article. I didn’t think there was anything new in it – it contained all the usual posturing that this ‘select’ group of architects have been peddling for years.
As to the suggestion that STW be involved, I’m glad BTH said ‘even Scott Tallon Walker would do a better job than what is being proposed’… the thoughs of STW getting another chance to roll out the same design in another city venur is scary – look at the Smurfit Building at Lincoln Place, Wood Quay, the Engineering Building in UCD – the same bland motifs and use of materials. Granted the inside of the Wood Quay building is quite impressive but the overwhelming sense is one of banality and safety in design.
