While a big fan of Foster, I doubt he had much to do with this one and personally think it is visually a load of muck. In my opinion, buildings which ignore their context to this extent need to be of an exceedingly high quality. In this case, the building is aesthetically bland and would undermine the charm and integrity of the quays without offering anything positive or representative of the best even (Foster) could produce. Apologies for the poor quality, I was in a rush but the boards and model are still visible in the foyer at D.C.C.
