Just stick to the facts, sir, just the facts


Thank you for the positive article you published about my career (AJ 8.1.04). Like most architects I am passionate about creativity, but there are a couple of points in the article which go beyond the realms of poetic licence, in that they are simply incorrect:

lAlthough I was a director in asset management at Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL), I practiced as an architect for my entire career, up until 2000. This is because I ran the architectural business at JLL, which was an integral part of the asset management service to clients;

lYou report that I was 'Liverpool educated', but, with a name like Owen, it is hardly a surprise that I actually studied at the Welsh School of Architecture in Cardiff, and am proud of it! (I was there 1975 to 1980, during the charismatic leadership of Professor Dewi Prys-Thomas. ) Valerie Owen, London SW1
