Ok, I take you point if that is the case.
In fact in thinking about this between my last post , and this, it occurs to me that architecture is not really like software. It is probably better to hire an Irish architect for Ireland, if that architect is as good as a foreigner, and all else been equal – given that a country needs to define it’s identity somehow, and an indigenous building style would be a way to do that. I am always wary of free market fundamentalism, like any other fundamentalisms.
Still, on this building. I like it, in photoshop as least – even if it is a copy of a building elsewhere, and regardless of who designed it.
