Re: Re: DDDA / Docklands Miscellany
Greg, do you think Canary Wharf is something that the Dublin Docklands should be looking towards for inspiration?
Indeed, as Beijing did use Canary Wharf’s Canada tower as a direct reference. Arup Engineers describe the CCTV building as like 4 no. One Canada Square buildings, put together. If you can imagine it as doubled, with two horizontal Canada Square towers, top and bottom in the attached image.
The North Wall Quay scheme’s highest part, wouldn’t even have been half the height of the CCTV building. But it would have had a critical mass and scale about it, that would have been seen from all points along Liffey campshires.
