Athfield non-architecture

Unfortunately, everywhere I am in Wellington where I truly despair at the awfulness of the building - certainly not architecture - I am trying to divert my eyes from, I find out it was created by Ian Athfield. Architecture should be about defining space around it and within it. Not be about itself. It's just Trumpism.

As a contrast, Andrew Patterson's spaces create loci without sucking up and sacrificing everything else around it.
