SOME HOME TRUTHS ABOUT CRYSTAL PALACE
Matthew Teague's paragraphs on Crystal Palace (Metalworks, AJ 29.09.05) are such a mess of utter untruths and misleading half-truths that it is barely worth trying to unpick them.
Certainly no first-year student essay would get away with stuff like this. I guess he wouldn't even have noticed that you illustrated 'Crystal Palace - paradigm for prefabrication' with a totally different building!
