Where did that building go?

Somewhere for the annoying and/or off-topic threads to go. Feel free to post about whatever, but abuse will still be dealt with, and possibly with more force. Especially pac-porno. ;)

Where did that building go?

Such a sad image. This is all that remains of the 14 storey office building where I had my first full-time job at the start of my IT career way back in 1986. :(

Just another one of the many, many buildings in the Christchurch CBD that were made unsafe by our earthquakes. The interesting thing is just how much one relied on buildings to navigate the city previously, without actually realising how much you relied on buildings as cues. There's so many missing now that when you're going through the parts of the city that aren't blocked from public access, you now have to keep looking for street signs to know when the corner at which you want to turn is coming up.

Cheers,
