Re: Re: Grafton Street, Dublin
Just a few of the O’Connell Street ones have been replaced, but just enough to upset the balance, and many of course right outside the GPO. This is very annoying, not only because of how awful they are, and the visual clutter created, but also because they’re replaced one of the few decent pieces of the street furniture that was introduced as part of the IAP. The brushed steel bins are so smart – they look great simply in their own right, whatever about actually serving a function. Indeed I’ve even seen a few people taking photographs of them.
It’s also frustrating how the one-siize-fits-all approach is being rolled out across the city with these new yokes; by any logic the same model is not going to be suitable for all locations, let alone such a frumpy design as this. Again joined-up thinking given a back seat.
