BREAKING NEWS: Queen's Wharf design winners
Slapping an embargo on something that they've postponed inexplicably for three days without any warning. Talk about a dodgy process - 5 AM means it's been jacked up for the Herald too. That's pretty cheeky.
I am not at all surprised - in the slightest degree whatsoever - to see Auckland's architectural nemesis (mentioned in earlier posts on this subject) wriggle into one of the three consortia vying to win the big contract. It's all so inevitable.As I said earlier:
The 5 designs to go forward are all very simple, very basic, very minimal and have a lot of very straight lines. All quite unremarkable and even more safe than I thought possible. It'll be functional - and they don't expect much more out of it than that. That's what they are asking - and that's what will be delivered - a barn for the rugga.
