Re: Re: Edward Square, Donnybrook, D4
From the way it sounds, the developer talks the talk – being opposed to out of own shopping etc. – but has been perhaps let down in walking the walk by architects?
I don’t know anything about this developer (apart from the typical sycophantic call-that-journalism blurb that the Irish Times are infamous for above) but if he is making an attempt to do something better (although I can’t tell from the photos here) that’s great. One ‘enlightened’ developer is worth 100 ranting architects. not least because the developer has the right kind of power. After all, enlightened developers in the UK were very important in getting CABE up and running, which has done a huge amount for the quality of design and the like of which is sorely lacking in Ireland.
