Reply To: libeskind / Manuel Aires Mateus on the docks
well asdasd, you build the best project and that’s it. If you think this Libeskind design is the best and better then any Irish Architect or Armenian, or American or Angolan or Slovakian or Scots architect could build, that’s what should be built, no question.
All I’m saying is that sometimes it is not always to do with design and quality of architecture………sometimes it is to do with marketing and pr and sale- ability.
I just happen to think that Irish Architecture is at the moment of an exceptionally high standard, generally. That’s all.
Not just for a small country but in universal terms and it has been my experience that when an international star is appointed for a “local” job those high design expectations are not always met.
