Anyone been inside these buildings and care to comment on their interior? As people are probably bored of my views on facadism I wont ramble on about it again 😉 . The situation with a modernist building is an interesting one though, as often their interior has been changed on a superficial level throughout the short lifespan of the building, and the structure of the building allows it to be altered considerably without it being completely replaced. What is being proposed by other posters is interesting as in recent years the trend has been to retain the structure of the building and make additions whilst replacing the facade. Goldsmith Hall being an example that springs to mind (It seemed that this was also done on the old Department of Foreign Affairs on St Stephens Green, but I can’t say for sure).
