Monte Vetro

Monte Vetro

'Monte Vetro' rather aptly named building sitting on the corner of the Grand Canal Basin beside the dart station. Literal translated meaning 'glass mountain' designed by international practice DEGW with Irish architects O’Mahony Pike. I've watched this one for a while and was looking forward to seeing it completed. I love the yellow bands which really pop in the sun. would like to see this beast with its belly full of tenants, alas I may have to wait for that one..

  • Nothing wrong with the sky, it's quite nice. 'tis a pity about the empty building though! I'd say the yellow stripes glow in the evening sun.

  • strange mixture o fold (looking?) buildings and modern ones. monte vetro somehow reflects and scrapes the sky nicely.
