Re: Re: Dublin skyline
The Dublin docklands redevelopment is undoubtedly a shameful waste of what was once a sparkling opportunity, but what interests me greatly is that even the most conservative voices on this board agree that taller buildings are acceptable, even desireable, in the docklands yet the DDDA in their supposed wisdom have taken the opposite view. Why is this? How have we managed to put the most conservative people in the country in charge of one of the most important developments in our capitals history?
What I’d really like to know is who are these architectural Puritans? And most importantly what is their reasoning behind the barrack-like developments that they’re foisting upon the docks? I have yet to hear a good argument from them as to why taller buildings are unacceptable in the docklands. Has anyone had any correspondence or read any literature from the DDDA about this matter?
