Dublin U2 tower competition?

Is this skyscraper the real winner of the Dublin U2 tower competition? The proposal, by London-based M3, has emerged as one of a number that may have been excluded from consideration in the Dublin Docklands Development Agency's competition. The official winner, Burdon Dunne Architects and Craig Henry Architects, was announced this summer, but speculation has been raging that the team only clinched the prize after organisers were unable to identify the architect of the judges' favourite in the anonymous competition.

M3's tower was overlooked during an audit of the competition by PricewaterhouseCoopers and, according to the Irish Sunday Times, bears a remarkable similarity to the entry first selected by the DDDA. However, a spokesman for the DDDA insisted: 'We are happy enough with the integrity of the competition'.
