  • Comment on: Crossrail developer slammed for plans to demolish listed building

    David Berridge's comment 8-Dec-2014 5:01 pm

    It does not "represent excellent urban … design" to demolish such a building. A triumph of words over deeds. And it looks as if the station could have been designed to line up with the former officers' residence…

  • Comment on: RIBA councillor slams delegation to Israel

    David Berridge's comment 14-Nov-2014 10:19 am

    Thank you George Oldham. It is unattractive for the RIBA to be sending two people who opposed the motion to discuss ethics. The matter is one of ethics not politics, the taking part by some Israeli architects in projects designed to prevent the emergence of a viable Palestinian state, and to assist ethnic cleansing in Israel. The RIBA is an international body who remit is to consider professional behaviour and ethics, and it is quite right to become involved.

  • Comment on: Inspector rejects appeal for UK's first Frank Lloyd Wright house

    David Berridge's comment 5-Nov-2014 9:49 am

    How Inspectors can twist and bend evidence; firstly the design is not as 'modern' as it was when FLW designed it, second the lake adjacent to which the house would stand is artificial, and therefore the whole concept is contrary to Wrightian 'naturalness'. Although the re-design does not sit comfortably in the landscape, as would a true Wright design, it is probably better than the majority of special case green-belt designs.

    Gorgeous rear elevation. It would be great if AJ published a construction detail. Or perhaps it will appear in the German magazine 'Detail'…

  • Comment on: Punters backing O’Donnell + Tuomey to win RIBA Stirling Prize

    David Berridge's comment 14-Oct-2014 9:00 am

    I took the trouble to visit the LSE building and I find it over-contrived, ill-resolved (look at how the rain running down the facades is dealt with), and offering little empathy to the surroundings other than a reasonable match of brick colour. I'm sure the judges will be persuaded by the hype and vote it to win. Notable the votes at the BBC are evens Shard and Birmingham Library - LSE scraping a 1% better than Manchester to avoid being bottom.
