St Stephens Green Centre has to fall into the Postmodern category – It’s very “late Venturi” vith it’s massive clock inside and applied facade decoration… On one level it’s a bit of fun and I can remember being blown away by the place when it was new and I was only 10 or something! On every other level its a nightmare though…

From the ridiculous to the simply banal – the Ulster Bank offices on George’s Quay are one of the worst examples of bog standard Postmodern – contrast with the building next door on Moss St/Townsend St. which is essentially exactly the same except without the applied decoration.
