Gasworks Into Artworks – The Rebirth of Dublin’s Waterfront

The Dublin Docklands Development Authority (DDDA) was created in 1997, generating a whirlwind of fresh ideas to redeem the look of Dublin’s waterfront.

Today, the square is characterized by influential architecture, teeming commerce, and one piece of unforgettable landscape design. Ironically, as this article sees publication, the DDDA exhales its final breath this May, at last dissolved – yet leaving behind a true legacy of growth and prosperity, with a tinge of red color.

Verbena of my favourite garden flowers
