whats the new gallery like, havnt been home in 5 months.October 19, 2004 at 5:24 pm in reply to: Do you remember the first time? #747236
i once had lecturer from the AA stand up in my crit and act out a scene from pulp fiction exclaiming redfaced with excitement ” samuel L jackson makes killing look cool” while shooting an imaginary person on the ground with his fingers. i’m still trying to figure out what that had to do with my scheme for an beach hut. He was also the same guy who put us through a 1hour and 45 mi lecture on the new york gay ballet scene. Once again i’m still trying to figure out what exactly it had to do with architecture!?October 19, 2004 at 9:39 am in reply to: Most Beautiful Building in Cork? #746888
sad but true. when will we ever learn?October 18, 2004 at 4:42 pm in reply to: Most Beautiful Building in Cork? #746886
Apologies phil you are correct, it does deserve a different thread, maybe i was wrong to ask such a question in the first place, having spent my life in cork i guess i should have known better….!
Just thought there might have been something i had missed, or that people might have a different perspective on this potentially great city that would convince me otherwise. Having seen the images of buildings discussed on this site ,i guess Green is the order of the day.
(now how do i close this thread!?)October 18, 2004 at 2:54 pm in reply to: Most Beautiful Building in Cork? #746884
n’uff said! don’t think your answering my question still no decent suggestions for a decent public space in cork , guess there arn’t any there pitty ho hum! maybe someone should design one , now thats a good idea! suggestions for a location?October 15, 2004 at 9:45 am in reply to: Most Beautiful Building in Cork? #746881
Phil , i agree I just find it frustrating to see poor design(modern) in cork particularly in housing and commercial sectors being produced and i worry that our developers are not allocating enough High quality public space so the city can function as a whole, rather than isolated buildings. I look forward to seeing what the Quays will look like in 5 or 10 years time when all this developemnt has calmed. Hopefully a new perspective on the city will have bee generated, and the effeort put into patrick st and paul st. will become infectousOctober 14, 2004 at 5:13 pm in reply to: Most Beautiful Building in Cork? #746878
partick st. as a whole. On a Saturady Morning or friday afternoon it is by far one of the most beutifull places in Cork city.
It is itself a single peace of urban design.October 14, 2004 at 5:05 pm in reply to: Most Beautiful Building in Cork? #746876
I think its really worrying that no one has mentioned Patricks street in this whole debate, is cork devoid of any high quality public space~?:confused: surely we can do better than some pretty awfull churches and a gallery no one seems to agree on.October 7, 2004 at 9:37 am in reply to: Most Beautiful Building in Cork? #746873
The Opera House by Murray .O.Laoire Architects.
The new Student Centre in UCC by O.R.S.A with the public space outside.

what is the vision for cork? what is the master plan long term goal of the city? how d want it be i 50 years time and beyond?
Rapid growth and trying to meet a rediculus deadline for developement of the city of culture lark is short sited and ignorant and will only lead to poor shoddy architecture of style over substance that in 10years time will look equally as hidious as all the buildings mentioned above. Cork needs a long term vision, surely thats what we should be working on rather than a takey street by street approach that exists at the moment.September 20, 2004 at 9:53 am in reply to: A philosophical question on Concepts in Architecture #745763
furthermore is there a place in 21century corporate media driven world, for architecture that “just is” no need for rationalisation or explanation? in truth, silent. In a room of shouting voices can there be silence?
