Reply To: Decentralisation and the Customs House
doesn’t the customs house have a fine edwardian interior? it’s hard to imagine that working well with a museum of architecture whiere a bigger blanker space would be needed. now, I haven’t ever been in the customs house, i could be wrong on this. it might work well as a home for various archives and the civic museum, looking cramped where it is now, and a tourist center and library, a combination of civic uses. maybe the Dublin office of the OPW could be there after they sell Stephen’s Green. the main thing would be to get people coming in and out again and through the riverside doors, its so sad looking the way it is now.
