  The site of the old Carlton Hotel, which was not a WW2 bombsite, surprisingly. The viewing deck was called the 'Martini Terrace' (Queen magazine 1 Sep 1965) and Ken Russell used this view over Trafalgar Square in 'Bartok' (BBC TV, 1963.). I think New Zealand House is a pretty good example of this 1958-64 vintage.Ian Nairn was ambivalent saying in effect a block of these dimensions could have turned out a lot worse, but it was still 'disruptive' and called into question 'the whole basis of tall blocks in cities' [Modern Buldings In London, 1964]

  This building is appalling - an insult to London. It towers above and wrecks Trafalgar Square and ruins Horse Guards Parade. It's clumsy and oafish - without any lightness and subtlety.It must come down. A building can be tall - like the Shard - and look great. This is just Spviet-style rubbish. New Zealand should be ashamed to allow this monstrosity to represent them.

  Fantastic that NZ owns such a significant building in london. I went up to the penthouse for a function and the veiws surpass that of the London eye.

  This is a horrible relic from 60's and needs to be either significantly renovated inside and out, or razed to the ground and replaced witha modern building sympathetic to a contemporary New Zealand identity.
