I'm just glad this one is actually imaginative.

The Pirie street design is just another bland and uninspired glass box.

This is being discussed at Monday night's ACC meeting apparently, so hopefully we'll have a definitive answer on what's happening early next week.

Bring on the big screens!

The people (albeit... 355 of them) have spoken - bring it on.
Take note ACC.

[CAN] AWESOME!

That render is BRILLIANT! I've been whinging that Adelaide needs an interesting, iconic building to just about anyone who'll listen, and it looks like this is it. Fantastic design - I hope it goes ahead. WOW. When I heard about the plans, I wasn't expecting anything like this. Thank god it's not ano...

I hope they go for the superscreens myself. In their original form, not a watered down version. I'd like to see something that is going to make a massive statement and an impact in the CBD. I don't think the box idea would do that as much. Screens are common in other cities. There's nothing memorab...

Decision has been delayed because the Vic Park debate took forever, apparently, so will be discussed at the next meeting.

City Messenger is reporting that the "TV box" idea, and covering the HJ's carpark with video screens are the two final options. When I was looking at the ideas in the Council foyer, I was under the impression that the render with the orange background and the birds flying across was just applying ar...

The red bar things really are awful.

The Santos building is a shocker. Looked alright in the initial render, but the real thing is very ugly.

I work next door and it looks even worse close up.

I think it's pretty boring myself, much like all the new developments in the city. I work in the new Flinders Link building (the glass box) - which is also disappointing. It's great inside, but hardly inspiring from outside. I'd like to see some interesting designs in Adelaide, rather than boring gl...
