BoB: on your point about the ‘lighthouse’ on top of the Irish Lights building; well, at least it’s an attempt at something contextual. Not only can architects not ‘do’ towers any more, they seem clueless as to what you do once you get to the top of any tall structure. Architects of another age had a whole vocabulary of ‘termination’ (as it were). Today we either avoid towers or just build enormous slab blocks with flat roofs. No wonder Docklands (e.g.) is so bland.
