Built between 1947 and 1953, designed by Michael Scott, Busaras was the first major work of modern architecture in post-war Dublin. Influenced by le Corbusier and the early International Modern Style, its architectural significance was immediately recognized outside Ireland.
The building was designed to house a bus terminus and transport company offices; it also featured a small newsreel cinema to occupy travelers. Constructed of reinforced concrete with Portland stone cladding, Busaras remains one of the landmarks of modern architecture in Ireland.
I've always been a fan of the elegance and rational behind its design, especially when you consider the Ireland it was built in. It's a brave piece of architecture we should be proud of.
I am now armed with a Lee filter system to allow me do daytime long exposures. To say that I am excited by this development would be an understatement.
For those interested, this is a 10 second exposure with ISO-100 & f/3.5 in mid-day sunshine.
