I hope you are not criticizing the front railings: I always think that along with their obvious grace, they succeed in forming a satisfying ante-chamber to the college, a semi-public space convenient for rendez–vous.

The front railings of Trinity are a sacred cow, they’re great railings, but imagine a College Green without them and without the unusable manicured lawns, what a space that would be.

Tudor’s print of College Green from front of Trinity. (McCullough’s book).

alonso, Maybe I misunderstood the ‘rooms’ terminology. Dublin still doesn’t feel cohesive to me in the way that it does to that urban reviewer. I don’t know how his urban sensibilities are calibrated, but If that’s how impressed he is with Dublin, surely if he landed in Venice, his head would explode.
