Re: Re: Dublin skyline
I think jimg is referring to “Gallery Quay”
With any composition, there is a balance between uniformity while avoiding tedium and contrast without creating a mess.
At one end of the spectrum is Dublin Airport, with disconnected buildings seemingly scattered at random across the site. The other extreme is somewhere like Darndale whose fundamental repeating unit is a very plain uninspiring house. These untis were then laid out in perpendicular geometric patterns like a circuit board. (image attached below)
This development doesn’t look so bad to me and is much better than the IDA young offenders prison across the road.
