This really annoys me that Foster is proposing this type of rubbish for dublin as he knows he wouldnt have a chance of getting permission to bastardise a listed building on his own turf in this type of manner.

I think he has :p The impressive English Electric Company building on London’s Strand has recently been demolished and the listed Marconi House completely gutted to facilitate Foster’s Silken Hotel. Here’s a photographic record of the destruction and a description of the boring looking new hotel. “The concept was to create a seamless relationship between the existing building and the contemporary additions” :rolleyes: : http://www.arthurlloyd.co.uk/Strandmusikhall/GaietyTheatreSiteThenAndNow.htm
