Re: Re: Irish Rural Dwellers Association
The tinkers have the right idea – it is the perfect solution and proves that one can have one’s cake and eat it. Simply drive your one-off into town to increase housing density when needed and, subject to the vagaries of the nation’s shifting demographics and market economics, pull your one-off back to a desolate part of the countryside when deemed necessary. The government will actively fund this type of demographic obfuscation through all sorts of cultural and economic initiatives. Instead of talking about these issues, Ireland’s architectural comunity should be putting their heads together to design such mobile one-off units that would have a ‘plug-and-play’ design, by which I mean they could simply plug into the local services infrastructure of a rural town or city and then move on to rebalance the nation’s demographics when needed. 32 county compatability would, of course, be desireable.
