Site of the new highrise block to be built in Cork.
The empty wasteland presents a desolate and barren scene, devoid of any signs of activity. The ground is dry and dusty, and the only structures visible are a few construction vehicles parked on the barren terrain, ready to build the Elysian. The emptiness of the wasteland contrasts sharply with the massive R&H Hall building and the disused chimney stacks visible in the background. The aged structures stand as reminders of the city’s industrial past, a time when the landscape was dotted with factories and warehouses. The hills on the other side of the River Lee add to the beauty of the scene, creating a sense of calm and tranquillity in the midst of the emptiness.
Despite the emptiness of the wasteland, the presence of the construction vehicles suggests that there is still hope for the future. The Elysian, a modern and towering building, will soon rise from the barren terrain, adding to the city’s skyline and prosperity. The juxtaposition of the old and new, the emptiness and hope, creates a sense of complexity and intrigue in the scene, inviting the observer to ponder the many layers of the city’s history and future.
