The government building, with its magnificent appearance, clean steps, cast iron fireplaces and interior decoration with cedar as raw materials, is an important part of New Zealand's architectural heritage. Like many colonial buildings in the last century, the government building imitates the Italian stone palace, symbolizing the strength and stability of the empire. The building is constructed from the best native wood of New Zealand, cedar, which can not be replicated by any building today, because all existing cedar forests in New Zealand are permanently protected. Shell fir is famous for its hard, elastic and beautiful appearance. After polishing, the honey-colored texture gives off a mild, satin-like luster. Today, the public can visit the ground floor. Flowers and plants around the building grow many of New Zealand's representative plants, many of which are rare. In the government building, visitors can see the history exhibition and translation room on the first floor and the cabinet room on the second floor. The rest of the building was rented to the Victoria University School of Law. There is also an Information Service Center of the Ministry of Environmental Protection, which is open from 9 a.m. to 4.30 p.m. on weekdays and from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays.
Typical British buildings, blue sky and white clouds are still very beautiful, because some parts are still repaired because they were damaged in the earthquake before. There are some exhibits in the corridor, and historical materials of the building are pasted on the wall. You can stroll if you have enough time.
The red flowers or trees in front of the door are amazing. Wooden buildings, old government buildings, reception of the British Royal family, no wonder the Royal Emblem seen in London. Now it's Victoria University School of Law. Inside, there are exhibition halls for visitors on the 1st and 2nd floors, introducing the history and maintenance of the building. On the second floor, there is a restored scene of the old parliament hall. Such a beautiful building is worth seeing.
A road away is the new government building. The contrast between the two sides is actually not obvious. Old buildings give people a more solemn feeling (probably because of the burning), the surrounding greening is great, the old buildings are lined with trees, and many squirrels add some vitality to it.
Not in. I'm not too interested. Just look outside. Some kind of flower looks like a jubilee.
Located opposite the Capitol Building, it is the largest wooden structure in the southern hemisphere. Old municipal buildings are a very important part of New Zealand's architectural heritage, using native wood cedars. Now that Shell Fir forests have been permanently protected, they are unique. On the ground floor, you can visit the historical exhibition and translation room.
