Re: Re: “Modern” Protected Structures in Dublin
Interesting thread; I remember an incident in the 1980s when I tried to convince the conservation section in Glasgow CC that the ‘Angel Building’ on a prominent corner location should attract their attention. They looked at me as though I was daft; it wasn’t ‘on the list’, so they weren’t aware of it or much interested. It’s not just bourgeois judges, it’s bourgeois architects and planners. And you’re right hutton to point out that historic interest and townscape value must count as well.
Below is a pic of the building; I think it’s now listed. For some reason, only half the pic has posted, but you get the idea.
