Many people forget about the context of Liberty Hall in relation to Busaras and I’m sure it was designed with that in mind but that the relationship has been largely altered by the addition of the Irish Life Centre in the 1970’s.

A restoration of Liberty Hall would be desirable but I would have concerns that the original glazing would be difficult to replace given the trend towards lower energy consumption aided by reflective or heavily tinted glass to reduce direct sunlight and consequently air-con requirement.

One thing that has always struck me about liberty hall is the way that people rarely complain about its outdated appearance vis a vis commercial buildings]

I think people like its bluish windows? Would replacemets go dark ala the temple of doom?
