ctesiphon: Ihaven’t seen the new Dunne’s corner in the flesh (as it were), but it generally seems to have been welcomed and it certainly makes a bold statement, However, the ‘articulate Georgian corner’ that preceded it was in a terrible state and was in any case pretty much understated. I have a complete aversion to losing the historic built heritage of any city, but I remember Sth Gt Georges St as a gloomy and uninviting corner of Dublin. It has been revived and reworked in the idiom of our time (eclectic as that is) and future generations will judge its worth. ‘Georgian’, like ‘contemporary’ covers a multitude of sins and it is not all of equal worth.
