Dunne on proposed Wgton airport terminal design
Ohariu-Belmont MP Peter Dunne, a long-time resident of Wellington and a frequent user of the city’s airport, thinks the proposed new design for Wellington airport’s terminal is a classic example of edginess that’s gone over the edge.
“I like Wellington’s reputation as the edgy creative capital of New Zealand, but edginess shouldn’t mean silliness.
“If Wellingtonians got offended by other New Zealanders describing the stadium as a caketin, they’ll be even less impressed by the nicknames that are already floating around for the new terminal which seem to focus largely on bovine residue.
“I remain unconvinced that a couple of pumpkins slowly turning green will blend in with or even reflect Wellington’s superb southern coastline,” said Mr Dunne.
