Reply To: 32-floor building planned for Dublin
St Annes Church an Dawson St has many admirers, it is a fine building.
When people talk about true Medievel landmarks they are talking about buildings such as the Cathedral in Milan which can be seen from a great distance.
Where the cathedrals of Commerce came in as that the Church(es) no longer provide the lead when it comes to landmark buildings.
Where the skyline was once dominated by church steeples in most cities people must look to property developers to provide new landmarks.
As time has gone on these landmarks have tended to get ever higher. Given the problems with open balconies most cities tend to build their tallest buildings as offices.
Tall buildings are in essence the pinacle of our built environment it is therefore essential that they are perfect.
