Too quiet Mr K. The Corpo website claims that Good Shepherd is due a decision today – anyone with the inside track on this?
Indubitably – I’d check with the Geography Department. It was through them that I heard about this – they already include optional land use and planning subjects at undergraduate level.
Converting this into a City-centre pad is my fantasy project. Gorgeously simple architecture, practically next door to Idaho cafÃ©. . .
From what I’ve read, the Eglinton Street tower will be taller than Cork County Hall, so if it gets built before some of those yokes proposed for Dublin, it will briefly have that title. I reckon that that location could take an even higher structure anyway, which would help to slim down the slightly squat appearance of the east and west elevations.
DAT – drug action teams – they are big buzz across the water. Maybe that explains why the building looks like the bowl of an enormous hash pipe.
I was thinking about this thread while doing Pana earlier, and it struck me that Beth Gali definitely got the trees right here. They are a really attractive green thread running through the middle of the street, without competing in any way with the existing gorgeous views of buildings such as Brown Thomas. 😀
Yep, best news this year for Cork’s cityscape!
That’s perfect, thanks Thomond Park and Phil.
I think the key attraction of this thread is its breadth. As an avid reader, I’d throw in my two-cent – please don’t split it up – it’s become prime gossip at any of the recent design-team meetings I’ve attended! Lexington’s suggestion for a part-two thread sounds like a sensible solution.
Well Pug, in the absence of word from the oracular Lexington, here’s a list to stimulate some outraged responses from those left-out. You can’t avoid Wilson Architecture and Reddy O’Riordan Staehli Architects; these are the big boys, and both have done high-quality work. Other competent mid-sizers include RKD McCarthy Lynch, Coughlan DeKeyser Associates, Hudson Associates, Kelly Barry O’Brien Whelan, Magee Creedon, SDA O’Flynn, Wain Morehead and Jack Coughlan Associates.
