Regarding 1930s buildings, yes there are very few such examples, let alone decent ones in this country. What I mean by the 1930s is the modern movement as a whole, and how it becomes more acceptable to replicate such architecture when necessary despite being but a handful of years away from classical/traditional architecture where it is considered taboo.
Not being a smart ass here Graham, but I don’t know of any examples where a modern building was exactly replicated beside another one. At present, it would seem, that we are too busy destroying our older modernist pieces (or refacading them at least) rather than replicating them. If it came to it though I think I would be quite happy if a pastiche (mirror image) of O’Connell Bridge house were to replace the pastiche of the Ballast House! 😉 🙂
