Re: For this soul needs to be honoured with a new dress woven…
It looks great.
Such an improvement on the nasty cheapo 70s block that was there before.
Cool crisp and clean lines, with the tinted glass envelope alluding to the placidity of the canal in front, and welcoming open skies above.
“O unworn world enrapture me, encapture me in a web
Of fabulous grass and eternal voices by a beech,
Feed the gaping need of my senses, give me ad lib
To pray unselfconsciously with overflowing speech
For this soul needs to be honoured with a new dress woven
From green and blue things and arguments that cannot be proven.”
From Patrick Kavanaghs ‘Canal Bank Walk’
Anybody else see the One Warrington Place, just down the way – and again a vast improvement…
While the Celtic Tiger may not have delivered massive Gerkin-style icons, here as with the Harcourt Building, the city has benefited from some good quality decent commercial buildings 🙂
