They forgot the Supreme Court building

Stuff has an article and poll on NZ’s ugliest buildings.

The options are:

  • The former Auckland Council building, Greys Ave
  • The Hilton, 147 Quay St, Auckland
  • The Spencer on Byron Hotel, Takapuna
  • The Base Shopping Centre, Hamilton
  • City council building, Palmerston North
  • PMTC Building, Palmerston North
  • The Beehive, Wellington
  • The former Government Life building, Christchurch
  • Civic House, Nelson

But how could they leave off the building?

After a few weeks of not seeing it I forget how ugly it is, until I view it again.

It is so beautiful inside, but the exterior looks like a Stalinist building with a barbed wire fence.
