Foster & U2's Bono partner Irish hotel project 

Dublin's Clarence Hotel is an upscale establishment that is about to undergo a 21st century renovation. The Clarence is being redeveloped by the project's owners, U2's Bono and the Edge, to be one of the "most spectacular hotels in Europe". The project, which is being designed by Foster and Partners, is estimated to cost 150 million euros. The new hotel will have 114 rooms, 14 suites and a world-class spa. Andy Bow, a senior partner at Foster's practice described the hotel in the Irish Times as being organised around a "skycatcher atrium" that would rise from the basement level to the roof. A reflective canopy is to cover the structure. Norman Foster described the Clarence in the Irish press as "an ambitious project" that will create "a bold new addition to Dublin's skyline.
