An online survey of best & worst buildings in Auckland brought more than a thousand votes in the first 2 days, Ignite Architects Ltd managing director Jeremy Whelan said.
Ignite commissioned the survey to promote greater public discussion about Auckland’s landscape: “We’ve definitely tapped into a groundswell of feeling about how Auckland is being developed. People have expressed some very strong opinions about some of the ‘uglier’ buildings the city boasts, as well as their favourites.
“Others have been contacting us directly saying they love the idea. They’ve talked about what different parts of the city mean to them, the identity of Auckland and our cultural heritage.”
Voting will continue until early May when the results will be announced.
