Pictures from Trinity College Dublin’s Berkeley and Usher libraries
It’s true they are beautiful, if you like bare concrete and wood panelling, but the ceilings let water in and you can kill twelve students by closing a door.
Broadsheet has some knowledgeable archibuffs. What’s so good about these buildings, apart from the impromptu waterslide and death chamber?
If you have a problem if no one else can help and if you can find them maybe you can ask a Broadsheet reader? Broadsheet@broadsheet.ie
