Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology Textile Art building entrance. Inspiring... At least it has a new coat of paint. Students walk through the parking lot to enter. (This is actually part of the original Griffins biscuit/cookie factory.)
Today is Father's Day in New Zealand; not sure of its origin as opposed to the June version, but perhaps English? Anyway, fathers of the world, have a enjoyable day. No harm done if you celebrate it twice this year.
UPDATE: I heard back from the Polytech, and the news is bad. The wall will remain plain, as stipulated in the City Council's building consent. Where the parking lot is now used to be the lovely old Artist-in-Residence cottage and a planted area with a path leading to the H Block door; this building consent was issued to flatten the residence and to get rid of the small garden.
