Reply To: New Streets of Dublin
I think the building is hideous but I suppose it is better than the flats at the end of Cork St. just before the relief road. At least it obeys the street line but I’m not too impressed by it all the same.
I think its a building that tries to be a landmark (but fails) as opposed to a building happy to take its place within a streetscape – something which many new buildings can be accused of. So i would say the answer to my question seems to be ‘no’ – buildings planned will not try to craete a streetscape but instead will jostle to stick out the best.
