Re: Re: The failure of Ireland
I think darkman was talking about dubai’s ambition not the actual number of buildings Dubai have constructed
Are most (not all) high rises not born out of necessity?
When the land becomes so scarce/valuable that the only way to build is up?
I think that is what we are witnessing in dublin as our fair city grows
Same goes for those terrible roads, those are needed for our ever expanding population to hop around
then there is mass transit which is needed for those folks who choose to avoid the traffic jams
Roads of high quality and mass transit of high quality are badly needed
And i seriously dont think its one or the other
edit; carbon neutral is a noble pursuit we should all take serious
