Re: Re: Farewell the Ormond Hotel?
Whatever about the architectural right-to-life of the current building, that illegitimate love-child of polyvinylchloride and moulded concrete that they hope to spring forth from the rubble of the old building is as ugly as it is obscene. Upon seeing the ‘render’ I thought of an idea, if the builders of this execrable edifice get through and they have a respectable Ailesbury Rd house, their house should be demolished and replaced with a concrete Borg Cube.
I love the ormonde Hotel anyway, whenever I’m coming in on the bus from my west Dublin residence its always a landmark for me to get off. To lose that building would be to lose my enjoyable trips via bus into Town.
