Reply To: Has anyone a picture of the George’s Quay tower?
I remember this scheme (Georges Quay) was first pilloried by all when it was announced that the developer would build it instead of a plan by SOM. They were labeled the portals of darkness if I’m not mistaken. The right decision was chosen in the end I suppose, as this scheme fits in well here. Of all the new buildings that have been developed in the docklands this one in particular, a design from the early 1990’s, has been used on numerous occasions in adverts etc. See it in the RTE promo too where slabs of the Giant’s Causway are transformed into the sparkly pryamid towers. Probably a sad reflection too on what has generally been built down the docks, when a kinda quirky design from the 1980’s/ 1990’s grabs all the attention today.
