Reply To: Former Irish Press building
I’d agree, a few more curves in Dublin would do no harm at all. Didn’t the architect of the Parthenon make sure that the lines of the building were slightly curved, Makes all the difference.
The front view of the building is good from the point of view that it blocks out Hawkins a little, not sure if it integrates very well with the Georgian building along side though.
The Corn exchange building could be enhanced by the addition of something along the lines of whats on top the Reichstag building in Berlin. That again would also reduce the impact of Hawkins house.
