Re: Re: The Challenge of ‘Art’
Are you implying – while retaining full deniability – that similar puffery is part of Irish architecture and its critics ?
I think we’ve established that a similar puffery [to use your term] is rife in architectural criticism, it’s one of the reasons that meaningful architectural discourse is virtually non-existant, as far as I can see. I don’t go out looking for architectural verbiage, but if I come across it I do try to hold it up to the light on one of the threads dedicated to that particular practice.
But what has all this got to do with Irish architecture ?
Probably nothing, but should there be such a total disconnect between Irish art and Irish architecture?
