The Australian is taking over the coals of what it appears to conclude is the failure of the National Museum.

But he claims the building and car park are too small, the foyer and shop too big, and the interior walls aren’t appropriate for the material they’re meant to showcase. “I think it’s a totally inappropriate design,” he says.
There’s also some interesting admissions from the architect about the childish culture wars elements in the design.
