    Built in 1967, not 1947. Love that building even more now that they’ve finally fixed the heating!

      How does pointing out that the Berkeley Library in TCD is also a Brutalist building make me a “right old whingebag”?

    it’s possibly the best example of modern architecture in Ireland. McDonald might hang around with artichokes but he ain’t one.

      I agree with you totally. Those curved glass windows were a masterstroke, and the shuttered concrete (which was done in Douglas Fir) is incomparable.

        Serious question Frank. What makes this or that architectural feature ” great”? Technical complexity?Rarity? Materials? All three?
