Reply To: Look at de state of Cork, like!
The architect is STW (yawwwwwwwwn – is there any commission they DON’T get) and the developer is Howard Holdings.
As for the girders – an absolute disgrace – and the purple and green “lighting” features installed for the millenium do nothing for them. The girders hardly add a Calatrava-esque flair to the rivers! Tear ’em down.
Speaking of bridges – for a city with as much water as Cork it has never fared well on the bridge front. The new pedestrian bridge to go from Coal Quay to Shandon/Popes Qy area is due to begin construction in November… any ideas what this will look like? I suspect Cork City Council will do their usual concrete slab and utilitarian railings affair… sigh.
