‘Two screens, one located in New York and the other in Dublin create a live audio visual link. Passers by notice the changing image, sound, sky, wind and weather in the linked place and on approach are able to chat to people over there.’

Irish architect Cathal Curtin has launched a unique new project on Kickstarter to digitally connect New York and Dublin. It would allow friends and family (and strangers) to speak, see and interact with each other right from the heart of each city (Trinity’s front square in Dublin and DUMBO in NYC). Anyone who supports it, can have their name, or that of a friend, engraved on the structure in Dublin or NYC.

Pictures from Trinity College Dublin’s Berkeley and Usher libraries
A new book [Dublin Architecture – 150+ Buildings Since 1990] honours Trinity’s Berkeley and Usher libraries as two of the best buildings in Dublin.
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
