When Alice fell through the looking glass, she was faced with an uncanny sense of scale. Whenever I arrive back in Christchurch I feel the same way, except that it is not me that seems too big but the buildings. Friendly, familiar old New Regent Street looks suddenly uncomfortable in the shadows of a building recently erected on Gloucester Street, while, nearby, The Press headquarters towers over its heritage façade.
