Auckland Buildings

Remarkably, there are still some nice buildings in Auckland that Sally Ridge hasn't demolished. Yet.

AEPB building, Corner Vercoe and Lincoln Streets, Ponsonby

I do so like the architecture of these old Electric Power Board structures. A utility building, stuffed with transformers, yet with sufficient Art Deco embellishment to be interesting.

D72 building, Dominion Road, Mt Eden

The D72 building looks like a giant, metal basket. Why can't more buildings in the inner-city look like this? I think it rather wasted in the scrappy hinterlands of Mt Eden.
