The Foster + Partner’s design for U2 tower has met criticism online, according to online peer review site Archiseek, which found one third of surveyed members did not agree with the end design.

The plans to redesign Dublin’s Clarence Hotel into Ireland’s tallest building should not be allowed to go ahead, architects say.

The skyscraper will feature a skycatcher atrium that resembles spaceship that will be visible across the city.

The Clarence Hotel is owned by Bono and The Edge of U2.

Dublin City Council is looking into their application to demolish four neighbouring listed buildings to transform the site.
