I agree completely. There is far too much of a preoccupation with preserving the recent past, often to the detriment of decent design. To be honest half the listed buildings in Cork are mediocre, and are of limited historical significance. I mean, buildings have always been knocked and made way for others, so why all of a sudden are we so paranoid about losing them, and jeopardising the lasting impact that much better designed modern buildings could have, instead of this mish mash of old and new, which in my opinion often doesnt work. Slight tangent, I know.
