I could say; tell that to the Dutch!

All of Dublin’s Docklands are built on reclaimed land, everything east of Liberty Hall on the north side and about Moss Street on the south side, is reclaimed land.

Brooking’s view south over a watery docklands from two hundred and eighty years ago.

What I was suggesting we do is acknowledge that the current shape of the city, in it’s relationship to the bay, is the haphazard consequence of centuries of largely utilitarian decisions, and face up to the challenge of designing that interface now in ways that address all the issues:

The likely relocation of the port,
The consolidation of the city’s urban core,
The likely requirement to provide increased flood defences,
The challenge of maximising the enormous recreational amenity that the bay presents,
Wildlife habitat issues.

It makes perfect sense to me!
