Interesting thread. Another case of an architectural “what might have been” of which Dublin has many. It would have undoubtedly been a fairly good building for its era but you would wonder how it would have aged.

I note that the text in Gunters post above refers to “a tower block and new National Library” also being proposed for the Beggars Bush site.

I had heard of the tower proposal before. Its mentioned in the Destruction of Dublin. It was to be 20 storeys, fronting a reflecting pool and flanked by lower office blocks.

I can’t find any other references, even in “Building for Government” which is a decent book. Can anybody post any renders or further info on both the Tower and National Library?? Given that they were OPW projects surely there is something out there?!
