      “Two urban bridges of the highest caliber were awarded: the Sean O’Casey Bridge by Brian O’Halloran & Associates in Dublin and the Lugner Suspended Bridge in Glass by Architekturstudio Bulant & Wailzer in Vienna. “Both bridges are brilliant aesthetic performances of engineering and far-reaching design skill.”

      Maybe it would be OTT to say it has “brilliant aesthetic performance of engineering and far-reaching design skill”, but it’s quite a nice little bridge and – importantly for Dublin – it’s in the right place, unlike a certain other recent ‘signature’ Liffey bridge, ahem.

      I’m not trained as an architect but am very keen on the subject. I think the Sean O’Casey Bridge is very elegant and deserves the reward.
      This is a real piece of engineering unlike the bridge proposed for the Royal Canal Bridge at Mayor St. which looks like it was designed by a traffic engineer and then given a makeover by an image consultant. Very disappointing, hardly worth the effort!
      I know the O’Casey Bridge was won in competition. Was there a comp for the Mayor St. bridge? What were the other proposals like?
