Hear, hear. The responses here in Kodiak are anything but enthusiastic. Ugly is the word heard most often for the new capitol designs. The NBBJ design that appeared on the front page of Monday's Mirror looks like a monument to window-mounted air conditioners. The other designs posted on the Empire Web site are no more inspiring. We will be moving to Juneau this summer, so if the city is going to be inconvenienced by a multi-year construction project, it ought to be for a jewel worthy of the beautiful setting.
