Sore thumb?

Auckland City Harbour News - - LETTERS -

So the new an­nexe next to Al­len­dale House is, ac­cord­ing to its de­signer, ‘‘de­signed to pro­vide a tran­si­tion . . . a de­lib­er­ate at­tempt to em­pha­sise the ar­chi­tec­tural in­tegrity of the orig­i­nal villa’’? ( Auck­land City Har­bour News, April 24).

Isn’t that just ar­chi­tects’ mumbo jumbo for ‘‘it stands out like a sore thumb’’?

It looks more like it was de­signed to max­imise car park­ing space. Nei­ther is this ap­pro­pri­ate for Pon­sonby’s his­toric main street nor should the new, im­proved su­per-city as­pire to such cyn­i­cal ar­chi­tec­ture.
