483. Bus Station from Custom's House Park, Dublin


Dear Mary Alice,

After talking to you about this blog, I realized I had done
a terrible mistake: I still didn't have not even a single
postcard about an Irish modern building. To compensate
my error, today I'm "sending" to you a wonderful
postcard of famous Busáras. The central bus station in
Dublin was built between 1945 and 1953 with a strong
public opposition because of its external appearance,
function and excessive cost. Architect Michael Scott was
also responsible of the design of the wonderful 1939 Irish
Pavilion of the New York World's Fair. He is considered
by many the most important architect of the twentieth
century in Ireland.

Sincerely.
R
