A heritage expert has stated that the controversial Cameron Offices in Belconnen should not be given heritage listing.
For those of you not following the story, the Cameron Offices are an ugly concrete monstrosity from the 70s which are in the process of being knocked down. Some nostalgic people think they should be heritage listed despite already being rejected.
At last some common sense. Just because a building is over 30 years old does not make it a national treasure (especially when it’s totally fugly). To this expert’s credit, he does recognise that there is more to heritage than “shape and form and colour”, such as the meaning and significance of a place. However he also recognised that the Cameron Offices have “very little meaning or negative meaning.”
