A world class ray of hope Print E-mail

ImageThe actual built-form performance of the Auckland City Council suggests that there is little chance of us ever being more than a third-world class city.



There is however one ray of hope. There is one building where excellence rises above the usual mediocrity. This is the Edmiston Wing of the Art Gallery. That is the one the City Council is going to demolish.
