Architecture - Stripping Back to the Basics
I'm not sure if I'm delighted, amused or appalled by this - while all the old architectural matrons are falling down around it after the earthquake, good old Calendar Girls are rising like the phoenix from the rubble - though to be fair, their building was erected before the quake. I'm not sure who has designed it - I've made a few enquiries and each architectural practice I've asked has said (quite emphatically) "No, it's definitely not us!" Maybe listing the home of exotic dancers, strippers and topless waitresses on your architectural portfolio isn't seen as the ultimate in good taste - especially not in staid and conventional Christchurch anyway.
