Countryside saved by campaign spirit - Congratulations AJ on the success of your spirited campaign.

Excellent news for architecture and even better news for the English countryside, no longer condemned to preservation in aspic.

Adrian James, Adrian James Architects, from Ishigaki, Japan - happy days now pastiche is past it - This should encourage a return to the tradition of patrons sponsoring good, contemporary domestic architecture - something that the UK has not been particularly good at in recent years, More passion, less pastiche - well done!

Laurie Chetwood, Chetwood Associates, London - it's time to push out the philistines Congratulations on the successful outcome to your campaign. What a coup! It's a fantastic victory for progressive architecture. Now we need to expel the philistines from the planning committees.

James Gorst, James Gorst Architects, London
