Is the sky in Dun Laoghaire like that all the time?
How about an overcast day and buildings speckled with seagull droppings…
The way Libeskind’s rises from the water is very effective – immediately it’s no longer a conventional pier.
It’s impossible to differentiate between it and Skidmore & Co without more surface/material detail.
The worst aspect of Scott Tallon Walker’s is the chunky conventional base, clad in granite no doubt.
What’s to go into this pier, is the hotel still part of it?
