Re: Re: DDDA / Docklands Miscellany
“direct reference” suggests an active engagement with the subject prior to the fact, rather than a post rationalised comparrison, which is what it is.
I doubt Rem Koolhaas or “Beijing” were aspiring to “4 no. One Canada Square buildings, put together” (even in terms of office space) the language of the post skews the facts to support a (dubious) argument.
But yes BTH my subsequent response was (as usual) disproportionate.
And yes I also kinda like the SOM thing, but only as an image, not convinced it would be right for Dublin.
What is/was it? Dead in the water?
