An example of the international Modernist Style, and strongly influenced by Le Corbusier, Busáras attracted much international attention when it was completed after the Second World War. The building was designed to house a bus terminus and transport company offices. It also featured a small newsreel cinema to occupy travellers. The bright and colourful top floor restaurant was originally meant to be public: a restaurant during the day and a nightclub in the evening. Constructed in reinforced concrete with Portland stone cladding, and decorated with mosaics by Patrick Scott, Busáras remains one of the landmarks of modern architecture in Ireland.
