The winner of H&E's Home of the Decade award for his distinctive Coromandel bach, architect Ken Crosson is invited to select his favourite building, and he shows truly admirable taste by selecting Claude Megson's Wood St townhouses in Freemans Bay [you can see the full article here at my Claude Megson Blog].
He compounds his excellent taste with this splendid observation:
Each unit is an individual, with its own courtyard and different views and a different floor plan and all are spatially rich. The top floors have amazing views of Auckland’s central city — they remind me of the main character in Atlas Shrugged, Dagny Taggart, who is inspired and empowered by the energy of the city.As you can imagine, Mr Crosson has just shot up enormously in my estimation. :-)
UPDATE: Speaking of Atlas Shrugged, Onkar Gate of the Objectivist Academic Centre has an online chapter-by-chapter video discussion of Atlas up at the OAC site. Highly recommended! [Hat tip Thrutch]
