'If the Olympics automatically gave its sites a boost, then Wembley, where the games were held in 1948, would be the hottest place in north London. This time, London has to mean it, and it has to deliver' Rowan Moore. Evening Standard, 1.7.03

'The Guggenheim's elaborate plans for a new Frank Gehry titanium shebang in lower Manhattan seem too ridiculous even to contemplate' James Gardner. New York Post, 3.7.03

'Most planning officers still think Ebenezer Howard is the new kid on the block and polio is ravaging our streets. De-densify the evil old city! What, and turn it into an architectural East Anglia: more gaping fields of genetically modified developers' vernacular?'

Tom Dyckhoff. Times, 1.7.03

'It's everything a city should be, a masterclass in urbanism. There are 100 ways you can turn a corner, 50 ways you can enter a house' Peter Barber on Brighton. Times, 1.7.03

'The truth about Perrault's design is that it's a flashy umbrella with a very ordinary theatre underneath It seemed to be almost a foregone conclusion that he would be the winner' Jury member Colin Amery on Dominique Perrault's success in the St Petersburg Mariinsky Theatre competition. St Petersburg Times, 1.7.03
