FOSTER APPRAISAL NEEDS MORE CAREFUL STUDY

LETTERS

In your recent crit (AJ 25.08.05) Capita Percy Thomas was chastised for producing a design for a city academy that it was felt did not represent an appropriate response to the site.

Yet in last week's issue (AJ 20.10.05) you featured another city academy by Foster and Partners that appears to bear no relationship with its environment whatsoever. (Although it does bear an uncanny resemblance to a road-kill koala bear. ) But, of course, there's one rule for the superstars and one for everybody else.
