  • Comment on: Stirling Prize shortlist: the critics react

    mmm...me too Joe, Ortus looks like a stunning project.

  • Comment on: Are there too many architecture schools?

    Alan Dunlop's comment 5-Jul-2014 12:11 pm

    "I have now wandered though another raft of end- of-year shows which display huge endeavour and creativity...but exhibit endless unbuildable, unreal, irrelevant and ultimately forgettable projects that will evaporate as soon as the shows close." Sadly I have too, in the UK but also China and USA as critic, reviewer and also external examiner. Often brilliant cgi images and stunning drawings from cleary talented students of ultimately pointless projects.

  • Comment on: Aedas unwraps limestone-inspired University block in China

    Having just returned from Suzhou and this building, I believe this project would be a very relevant and informative case study for those architects interested in how things are done in China. Focusing on the high aspirations and design intent of the architect, compared to what the LDI's and contractors understand and are capable of delivering.

    Why not use the currently vacant architecture studios of the Fielden building at Strathclyde University as much needed temporary studios for students of the GSA, while restoration work is undertaken. A generous offer of solidarity, respect and friendship from one great institution across the city to another needing help which will be a positive reuse of much respected Fielden building?
