There were planning laws pre 1963, including planning schemes for Dublin. I was wondering how this building was permitted under these older rules.

Is there a book on the 20th century planning history of Dublin pre-1963?
Why is this building worse than any other cuboid office block of the same height? Not shiny enough? No pyramid on the roof?

When it is knocked, will it not be replaced by something that is essentially the same yet shinier?
