Who said what

'The only radicalism on offer to Londoners is the radicalism of capitalism let off the leash? Developers many thought were retired or dead are back in business' Nick Cohen. Observer, 22.2.04

'All the government's members have been on a crash course on the history of modern architecture, aided by CABE. Now they're on first name terms with la-di-da architects like FAT and de Rijke Marsh Morgan. But the class swot is John Prescott' Tom Dyckhoff. Times, 17.2.04

'If you change the design, it transforms the meaning of the building, and not really for the good. If the building was an object in the collection, it would be treated with kid gloves, but because it is the actual building it does not seem to matter' Peter Wilson, head of the Manifesto Foundation, objecting to 'improvements' at the Museum of Scotland. The Herald, 19.2.04

'Right after the disaster, I said, 'I hope they don't put up a group of office towers surrounding a cemetery'. But that is exactly what is happening' Writer Adam Gopnik on Ground Zero. Architectural Record, February 2004
