The architects who won an international competition to design the U2 tower at Dublin’s south docks are contemplating legal action against the Dublin Docklands Development Authority (DDDA). In a response to a Freedom of Information Act request seeking information on the tower, the Department of the Environment said legal proceedings between BCDH, which won the competition, and the DDDA “were either under way or being contemplated”. However, details of BCDH’s correspondence to the department cannot be published as, in a highly unusual move, the department deleted the email. The department says that, because the email was deleted, no record exists. Asked why a record pertaining to a possible legal action was deleted, an assistant principal in the department admitted to the Sunday Tribune that “perhaps that email should have been archived rather than deleted”.
