    Let’s face it, was there anything shovelled into place during the precast concrete eras of the late 50’s-80’s that wasn’t horrendous?
    There are honestly so many peurile modernist abominations in dublin that an ugliest building survey is somewhat of a waste. Why not just categorise by type or location? Shovel the whole of mount street and its ilk into one category, Liberty Hall/Busarse into another, Stephen’s Green South and the like into a third, and leave the rest named as Hawkins House.

    At least of late dublin has been fortunate enough to have good buildings foolishly put in poor situations, where at least you have the comfort that they’d look good _somewhere_. A lesser evil, and some sign of progress.
