Re: Re: Grafton Street, Dublin
I disagree. Done properly, with well manufactured and well informed contextually ‘Dublin’ furniture and paving design, a so-called heritage look could work extremely well on Grafton Street. Far from it downgrading the street, being the only thoroughfare in the city centre with such a treatment would inject it with a new status.
Barcelonaisation across the board is both as tiresome as it is as unimaginative as people tend to claim the historicist approach is.
