So, the new lighting on Giffin Square has finally been installed, which hopefully means that the public realm works are nearing completion and we might actually get to use the square in the near future.
It's a difficult one this. Looking at the number of lighting units on the poles, it seems that the square is going to be very well lit, which is good.
On the other hand, the black material combined with the design of the lighting units (in particular the rather ugly connection between the poles and the lighting units) makes them look rather lumpy and also quite sinister.
On the plus side, at least they are upright and less gimmicky than the other lighting solutions we've seen in all the other new public realm works in the area.
