  2. I like the shape and I like the colour. I rarely ascend the steps up from Martin Place. My silent protest about the original demolition. We have long memories, us flaneurs of the footpath!!!

  4. Is that what that is. Didn't know, or had forgotten that it was a Seidler building. Haven't seen one of his that I like. If I go down there I usually cut through to the food hall from Martin Place so don't see that area.

    I don't mind old Harry's work - especially this one.
