I was going to say that to achieve this you’d have to stop missarchi posting his/her designs full of manic desire lines in the best road-traffic engineer tradition, but (a) that would be unfair and (b) the concept of College Green as a ‘shared space’ with pedestrian priority is a sound one. What about the buses? What about them? A nice puzzle for the traffic planners: you can have them anywhere but here.
Incidentally, why does Dublin have no large paved open spaces? The same reason why Paris has wide boulevards: the citizenry is revolting and they pose a ‘security’ risk by either congregating in numbers or building barricades. No change there then.
