'Pinwheel' Tower - Organon Architecture



PinwheelTower1987-003I drove past the big hole in the ground yesterday on the corner of Albert and Victoria that will one day soon will become Auckland's second tallest building, and I reflected wistfully about this student project of mine from 1987 for the city block next door at Queen and Victoria, where the awful Philips Fox building(s) is/are now.

The pictures of the concept model are rather worse for wear, I’m afraid, but I still like the way it would have soared up out of that Queen St corner, and require of passersby just a little bit of time to get to know.
