Re: Re: High Rise Building
Some of the development out at Heuston, overlooking the Royal Hospital gardens.
A rendering on a hoarding.
That rendering is a fairly typical example of the artistic licence taken in contemporary renderings; the wispy sky and absence of sun glare on the extensive glazing. Not to mention the stone gate style feature displayed as being open.
During the discussion on Hueston Gate proposal in late 2003 someone made the point that the height of the tower was irrelevant to The Royal Hospital in the context of this permission. They were right this scheme is an unmitigated disaster destroying the context of the finest 17th Century building in the Country.
