Cathedral Square

Imagine how good Bruno Freschi’s Cathedral Square on Richards Street could look if it was animated. The square is built over a major hydro substation and is possibly our best public square. Perhaps a coffee shop at the north end, some great sculpture like a hydro engineer with his tool box emerging from the water, some side-by-side adult swings from the arches for lunch time lawyers …..
