Beresford Place. 1946 - 53, by Michael Scott. ...or so I always thought. From reading Christine Caseys text on the project in Buildings of Dublin, however, seemingly it was designed "largely by his team, principally Wilfrid Cantwell, Kevin Fox, Robin Walker, Kevin Roche and Pat Scott (mosaics)."
Bravo, ye unsung pensmiths.
To me it still stands out as probably the boldest, bravest, ballsiest piece of architecture Dublin has ever seen built. Sure, parts of it are a bit down at heal...but just think of when it was built; Dublin in the 40's. Think of the confidence, the youth, the exuberance that it took to bring that design from mind, to paper to reality.
I'd love a bottle of that.
