Ballsbridge – Sorry Stephanie

ops, too heavy, not elegant

cool concept image

A “second string” SA rugby team just beat Ireland, but thats not the point of this post – sorry irish Stephanie, my wife’s best-est rugby buddy. But the new Lansdowne Road Stadium, for me just doesn’t live up to the initial concept images. Sorry, but seeing what SA produced this year, its chalk and cheese. The expressed structure is too in your face and the original images show this as a very delicate almost invisible structure. Its a classic problem when you do the initial images. Populous, who are one of the big boys, along with HOK Sport and Scott Tallon Walker who do top drawer stuff, but unfortunately this time they just haven’t pulled this off. It seems apt that the stadium is located in Ballsbridge – shame for such a world famous venue.
