'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

St Petersburg Times, 1.7.03
