While on my way home last night, I noticed [and not for the first time either] how well the Bank of Ireland in College Green looks at night. Not the main part but the curved screen walls with their blind niches and columns – very dramatic.
It is an amazing thing that we can do this at night, create a completely different building through artifical lighting.
Right on. The new lights for the various Liffey bridges were also being tested the other night. The ones on Butt Bridge looked particularly good – though I question the choice of colour for the lights on the buttesses. A real bright ‘kelly green’. Simple white light or a very gentle tone tends to look better.
