Proposed New Plymouth Plaza pulled

The NP City Council has thrown out John Matthews plan for a plaza to protect and enhance the Len Lye facade. Now the previous mayor Peter Tennent has jumped in to call for its reinstatement. One interesting quote from the Council meeting goes to the Len Lye Centre architect who when asked if the mirror surface would go dull replied rather unhelpfully that "the panels would dull down over a long period of time, especially if the council did not clean them." OK.
