Re: Re: Dublin skyline
The real point I think that you are making is that regardless of the height of the structure proposed contemporary architecture in Ireland is beyond a few Civic buildings of excellent virtually non-existent. It is not about height it is about measured imagination and this is sorely lacking at present. What sums it up for me is BKDs O2 building nearing completion at Sir John Rogersons Quay the DDDA have a lot to answer for on many counts not least the complete absence of cultural facilities. It remains a sad fact that the best buildings in the Docklands i.e. Busaras and Customs House Docks Phase One were built before this city had any cash. It is further amazing that BKD could design a decent building in 1988 but appear unable to deliver anything decent at a similar waterfront location in 2004.
