With Friends of Hunter Like This.....
Much midnight oil has been burnt while seeking an appropriate use for the Hunter Building. I wish to put forward a recommendation to save it from becoming a totally useless space.
The chaplaincy at 36 Kelburn Parade is being evicted this year to allow for development of the varsity's academic facilities. So:
The Hunter Building should be hollowed out, have butresses built in to increase its earthquake resistance, and stained glass windows installed to increase its aesthetic appeal, then consecrated as the campus cathedral. This will privide accomodation for those who currently inhabit 36 Kelburn Parade and will also show VUW is a cut above any other tertiary institution in New Zealand.
Yours in inspiration,Harold Yellowflower.
