I was so stunned at how totally inappropriate all four Capitol designs were. I sent the Web address out to about 30 or 40 friends, most of whom live all over Alaska and some of whom were former Juneauites, and asked for their opinions. Not one of them liked any of them. Almost every one commented about the lack of anything remotely Alaskan, Native, mining or historical represented in the designs. I sincerely hope it is not too late to throw these designs out and start again. Perhaps restricting the design phase to Alaskan architects might be a good place to start.
