What if the substandard work from an international star is better than the best work from Ireland? I still smell protectionism here. The best Athlete from America, giving a sub-standard performance in the Olympics will almost certainly beat the best Irish Athlete.The pool is bigger.
If the best Irish Architect was really good, he would be an international star anyway. It’s not as if, I presume, there is an Irish school of architecture with everything deriving from a similar pardigm, or look, which in future generations will mark the era: instead all architects have their own signatures. I am not an archiect but maintain an interest in the environment around me, and the stuff chosen for the grand canal seemss way better than the IFSC – which was not doubt an Irish designed block.
