Re: Re: libeskind / Manuel Aires Mateus on the docks
Even if this had been carved out of a single block of lard, or whatever, I just don’t get it.. . . but then, I don’t really get the ‘Gerkin’ either, so maybe there’s always going to be great contemporary architectural icons that I just don’t get.
Having said that, if a person had any interest in extravagantly expensive design statements by some of the world’s architectural elite (and let’s face it, who hasn’t) this little quarter square mile of Dublin is the place to take a little wander around at the moment!
The construction of the Libeskind theatre is amazing and it’s taking shape so quickly in comparison to everything else around town that it must be being built by elves,
No matter how fiendishly complicated the steel and concrete details, every day you go down there, there’s a new bit bolted on.
I hope somebody’s put a webcam on this.
