Fear not Elizabeth. A series of monoliths is a thing that can not be

By johnboy 3 May 2013 28

The ABC has a story about Inner North Nimbys bitching over inner city development.

I was particularly struck by this line:

Elizabeth Teather says residents do not want a series of monolithic high rise blocks.

Hmmm.

monolithic
adjective

formed of a single large block of stone.

For Elizabeth’s benefit and with the magic of the internet we have, however, been able to simulate a series of monoliths:

monoliths

Here in the editorial bunker, in Canberra’s Inner North, proudly staffed entirely by Inner Northicans we’re all in favour of more residential development in opposition to creeping gentrification.

What’s Your opinion?

You got a source on that?

Major apologies, I was giving opinion in that post, not fact.

A brutopia of monoliths?

It would be wonderful, truly wonderful, if we could have a touch of the grace, style, charm and intelligent liveability which (apparently) exists in some parts of some European cities. Far more likely, we will get the usual Canberra combination of Costa del Pom tackiness and eastern European soviet era grimness and shoddiness – and it will be every bit as expensive (to buy/rent and maintain) as the market can possibly bear.

Um wouldn’t more than one monolith no longer be “mono-” ?

No, I’m pretty sure the individual structure is known as a monolith, as in a single spire. You can still have more than one monolith as long as they’re separate structures
