Reply To: 32-floor building planned for Dublin
Almost destroyed there are still a few intact streetscapes but not many.
To limit the effects of taller buildings it would be appropriate to select suitable sites when deciding where to put them.
Outside heritage areas there is little excuse for groundscrapers.
These speculative apartment developments often designed by engineers get it wrong they play too safe. Thus adding to the visual wallpaper that passes for streets in many parts of Dublin.
Site selection is everything, finding sites that have special attributes is the best way to raise the bar.
