Every so often I see something so ugly that it is actually beautiful… This Government building in Whanganui is a case in point.  Initially I only saw the ugliness, then I looked closer, saw the angles, the vegetation, the colours on the concrete – and was fascinated.  I see the current occupants are moving out soon, and wonder what its fate will be.

  1. I know exactly what you mean! You’ve done this building great justice with your photos. I can see where you find the beauty. I almost wonder if it isn’t the re-capture by moss and lichens and grasses that makes it more attractive to me.

  2. One thing: building with words on paper if it turns out ugly you can always delete; building with steel and concrete the ugliness will remain forever . . .
