Preservation and Transformation of Georgian Dublin
Preview not available

Abstract

Georgian Dublin is one of the finest surviving examples of eighteenth-century urban architecture in western Europe. This architectural heritage is imperiled by modernization and urban redevelopment. Because of inadequate preservation policy, developers' cupidity, and public apathy, the structures are vulnerable to abuse and demolition. Three processes are identified and examined: demolition and replacement, conversion to new uses, and restoration. These processes are preserving and transforming the Georgian sections of Dublin, but the architectural integrity remains in jeopardy.
