Further to yesterday’s post on the new €36.6 million library and arts centre [currently under construction] in Dun Laoghaire, Co Dublin.

The view from the pier.

Gulp.

Emily writes:

“This is what it will look like from the top of the pier. It dominates the seafront and blocks out the lovely facade of the Royal Marine [Hotel], and is totally unsympathetic to its surroundings.
Given its proximity to the harbour, the bunker-esque style windows are ill thought out, and I think it’s amazing that there are no balconies or viewing platforms. The money should have been used to redevelop the old baths although they probably would have made a hames of that too.”
