Council leader Ken Bodfish on Frank Gehry's skyscraper scheme, now backed by Brighton council. Brighton Argus, 24.7.03

'I was fortunate enough to grow up in a professional family, so I had role models. But not in the creative industries. That wasn't something we did. Law, medicine, fine, but architecture? Isn't that for eccentric white people?'

David Adjaye. Times, 22.7.03

Rowan Moore. Evening Standard, 22.7.03

'Only last week, when I saw them for myself, did I register the full horror of what has happened there. These rooms have been wrecked as surely as if the former director and his trustees had thrown a grenade into them'

Richard Dorment on Piers Gough's renovation of the National Portrait Gallery's Regency Rooms. Daily Telegraph, 23.7.03
