Re: Re: Dublin’s Ugliest Building
. . . definitely a thumbs up from me. Balancing public grandeur fronting a dual carriageway with residential intimacy is no mean feat. I think it’s been pulled off admirably.
OK Graham, it doesn’t deserve to be dealt with on a thread of this title, but you put the Timberyard (by O’Donnell/Toomey) together with that school extension by McCullough/Mulvin, down the end of the road, and you have two of the heavy weights from Group 91, yes!
. . . . now, how do you compare this cold, defensive, architecture with all those aspiration in ‘Making a Modern Street’ ?
Surely the Coombe by-pass should have been exactly that; the making of a modern street?
