Does Alsop have a lot Riding on commission?


Aren't we architects becoming just a little bit too conceited when we think we should rename a place merely on the strength of being fortunate enough to obtain a few commissions there?

The 'wonderful part of the country' Will Alsop writes abut already has a name: the West Riding of Yorkshire! And 'tha's now't wrong wi Doncaster!'
