Re: Re: Macken St Bridge – Santiago Calatrava
I don’t get the Calatrava hero worship. At this stage, Calatrava bridges are as ubiquitous as McDonalds and about as interesting; for some reason I’m reminded of the golden arches everytime I see a Calatrava bridge :p
Yet they still seem to feature on every urban-renewal shopping list in the world. You can see “a Calatrava” anywhere in the world. So why bother with a second one in Dublin? (I don’t even like the first one – it’s been poorly maintained and provides neither contrast nor sympathy for its setting). Does anyone think anyone anywhere outside of Dublin will notice or be interested in another Calatrava bridge?
