Design on ice

Some thoughts on Camden Sainsbury's from Nicholas Grimshaw in John Tusa's On Creativity (Methuen, £14.99) - a collection of interviews with leading arts figures including Howard Hodgkin, Anthony Caro and Harrison Birtwistle. Tusa asks:

'I wonder whether you mind what has become of it now? In the early days it was clear Grimshaw inside - neat, cool, clear, logical.

It has now become a sort of hideous multicoloured bazaar.'

'I think that one has to accept that shopping has its own mores, ' says Grimshaw philosophically, though he adds: 'If it turned into an ice rink, I would be perfectly happy - in fact I think it would be rather thrilling.'
