Home Forums Ireland Dublin’s Ugliest Building Re: Re: Dublin’s Ugliest Building


There is no doubt in my mind that Hawkins House is the one to beat, but it also “benefits” from a very bleak location, in an underscale car park, given priority over pedestrian access, and with a dreary bus park of a street to one side of it. Viewed, almost always, through a vision of diesel fumes. Replacing the Theatre Royal (no beauty itself but well liked, if not then appreciated or heavily used) also acts against it.

Now my question is if it had been built on a stand alone site, say somewhere in a field in Stillorgan, would it escape condemnation? I tend to feel no.
