Aniwaniwa Visitor Centre

Back in January 2004 the John Scott designed visitor centre at Aniwaniwa looked like this:

In May 2011 it looks like this:

In 2004 the Centre was 30 years old. It showed a few signs of its age but no more than you would expect. Seven and a bit years later it is in a tragic state. I'd suggest that this is a maintenance issue rather than a design or build issue.

The Aniwaniwa Visitor Centre is an important Scott building. It is also an important part of New Zealand's architectural heritage. It needs to be saved and preserved, not demolished.
