AF BUILDING DESIGN IS ALL ZAHA'S OWN WORK

LETTERS

Michael Badu's letter about the Architecture Foundation (AF) headquarters (AJ 27.07.06) is incorrect. The design is wholly the work of Zaha Hadid Architects. Allies and Morrison is lead architect on Bankside 123, the Land Securities scheme in which the Architecture Foundation building will sit.

Badu calls for a QS to be included on AF competition juries. The jury for the AF New Building competition was, in fact, advised by a QS.

Land Securities, which is funding the scheme, set a notional budget at the time of the competition in 2004/05 but, since then, the scale and ambition of that project have increased, as has the budget accordingly.

Rowan Moore, director, Architecture Foundation
