Re: Re: National Wax Monstrosity
Oh I think my professional reputation remains intact- had I advertised myself as a bunker historian (a la Paul Virilio?) then perhaps your criticism would be more wounding, but the Monstrosity hardly qualified as architecture now, did it? 🙂
At 1967, it was fairly early for auld Sammy I think. He and Arthur Gibney entered the UCD competition in 1963-64 as relatively fresh graduates and their scheme, which came 4th, was actually pretty interesting. Instructive to see how far he’d fallen in the space of a few short years.
(Do I sound like an Architectural Historian now? 😎 )
