A study of urban morphology in relation to a particular site on the corner of Foster Place and College Green. Foster Place is an interesting little cul-de-sac that emerged in the fabric of Dublin’s city centre at the turn of the 19th Century. Historically flanked by banks and financial institutes, College Green now marks the primary tourism and education axis of Dublin City.
Today, the short streetscape of Foster Place is flanked to the north by the wax museum, the east by the Bank of Ireland (formerly the Houses of Parliament), and to the west by Allied Irish Banks and Starbucks (the site in question).
