Is there some personal connection between Burdonne Dunne / Craig Henry and U2?
Somebody is somebody’s brother-in-law or soemthing?
Yes really. She’s the girlfriend of a friend.

The truth is out there.
I don’t know how Old knows about fjp’s keyboards though….
Hey! I know that girl!
It’s a shame half or more of the population of the city will be excluded from this…
25 x 20,000 = 500,000.
Does GregF work for Fianna Fail?
There’s nothing strange about that JL.
It’s the same in every movement in every discipline. Today’s avant garde gets co-opted, debased and assimilated into the mainstream of tomorrow.
What is strange is that nobody who posts a question on Archeire ever seems to get a direct answer…….
…..although looking again, I see that C Ferdinand did not actually ask a question!
But I have heard that the latest research suggests that morality (and hence notions of ‘good’ and ‘bad’) developed out of an essential sense of disgust at things which were poisonous or diseased or otherwise unhealthy. So by that logic, the purest, most minimal, sterile, white cube modernism must be the best.
But then we need to be exposed to some dirt and decay to develop our immune systems, so maybe it is better to tag on a few kitschy bits here and there, let the plaster crack a bit…..
I think it’s fair to say that style in architecture is essentially meaningless – leave it to Wallpaper ragazine to deal with that. All the movements borrow from what went before, whether or not they admit it in their official manifestos. There’s no need to be ashamed of the past, neither is there any need to be a slave to it.
I suggest that C Ferdinand changes schools, and gets a shot of a different kind of dogma.
What’ll it be – UCD or Bolton St??
it’s a thesis project.
Nobody will pay for it ‘cos it’s not going to happen!
The new school of architecture in Porto, Portugal by Alvaro Siza is interesting as a building…but probably quite different to anything you might plan for Trinity.
AA or Bartlett? Neither I hope – anyone I’ve met from either of those schools has been pretty obnoxious. But maybe that’s just my bad luck…
