Melhuish missed point of Doing it Differently


I have always enjoyed Clare Melhuish's thoughtful articles. So the review of Doing it Differently (AJ 20.3.03) was puzzling.Did she open the drawers? Read the architects' texts? Look at the intriguing (and poetic) objects on top of the plinths? Take note of the large photographs wrapping round the boxes? (Is that not a way to make architecture 'visible'? ) This is an exhibition for a very diverse audience, many of whom find the prosaic 'management speak' very meaningful because it is about completing projects efficiently.

The exhibition shows by example that architecture need not be sacrificed in this pursuit as it so often is.
