Posted February 15, 2018 14:59:47 The Irish Government is currently looking into the possibility of a possible ‘Brutalistic’ design for the new Dublin Airport in response to concerns about the security of the city.

A Department of Transport spokesperson confirmed to The Irish Sun that a report is being undertaken, but added that the department had not been made aware of any proposals to alter the layout of the airport.

It is understood that a design, called Brutalism, was suggested to the Department of Environment in 2017, but this was never made final before the election.

The department’s report, to be presented to Cabinet, will also look at the viability of other airport options such as the Dáil and the county seat of Louth.

The report will also consider the possible removal of the iconic ‘Bruton Bridge’ from the main runway of the new airport.

This was removed in February last year to save space for a new runway.
