'Imagine Garbo or Sinatra in their prime, and performing now.

With this week's opening of the 2003 Serpentine Gallery pavilion, just such a time-warping miracle is taking place' Rowan Moore on Oscar Niemeyer. Evening Standard, 17.6.03

'Because it is too big to be a pavilion, and too small to carry the load of all its architectural gestures, there is a jarring awkwardness about its scale, almost as if it were one of those two-thirds full-size doll's houses on Disney's Main Street' Deyan Sudjic on Niemeyer's Serpentine pavilion. Observer, 22.6.03

'There are still a lot of people who look at you pretty blankly when you start talking about design - and that includes a lot of our politicians' George Ferguson. Daily Telegraph, 21.6.03

'By some measures of architectural greatness he is Brazil's fifth greatest architect' Rowan Moore on Oscar Niemeyer.

Evening Standard, 17.6.03

'He is friendly and chatty, with a mop of hair that you instinctively want to ruffle' Catherine Moyes on RIBA president-elect George Ferguson. Daily Telegraph, 21.6.03
