Re: Re: Liberty Hall
Buildings ony become truly iconic when they become emblematic of an era/ place/ event. The poolbeg stacks and liberty house are certainly emblems of Dublin so I definiteley think they should be retained.
The renovation and adaptation of buildings is also poised to become one of the biggest sustainability issues over the next few years. This idea that a buildings utility is exhausted after a mere forty/fifty years is ridiculous. The destruction of buildings such as liberty hall is a needless waste of time, resources, money and energy.
We would be much better served by imaginative ideas for adaptation than just wiping the slate clean and starting over.
