I would just like to post my disgust at the recent approval of the Clarence scheme. Dublin City Council are being bought by a pop band that are turning Dublin from its heritage into something from their Popmart identity. Just look at “Sir” Foster’s “landmark” tower – what a joke. Let’s cap it all off and stick a big lemon/mirrorball at the top of it.
U2 and Foster associates are making a mockery of Dublin City, a city trying to modernize (which is all perfectly admirable, but not this way).
Its a disgrace that listed buildings can be simply ignored and knocked.
The people of Dublin should stand up and let their voices be heard on these issues before the city loses its identity forever.
As a student of architecture, it saddens me greatly to see what is happening in my hometown and that the safety measures for protected buildings are failing.
Sorry to be so negative but I am upset.
