'I'm not a philistine and I like Gehry's work but this would look better out at sea. A Guggenheim on the edge of an industrial area, as in Bilbao, is one thing - four crumpling phalluses over the old people's homes of Hove is another' Designer and Brighton resident Will Harvey. Evening Standard, 6.8.03

'If we were to build nobly and well here, it might just be worth destroying the wild charms of the Thames, displacing its marshes, its working ships, its dragonflies and wading birds. But what is being built here, for all the fine words, is low-grade subtopian housing: isolated, boring, and a nesting ground for future disaffected teenagers' Jonathan Glancey on Prescott's Thames Gateway housing plans.

Guardian 30.7.03

'The facade had definitely seen better days, the general fabric was in need of attention, and the upper stories were overgrown with tangled foliage. And that was just Griff Rhys Jones' Thomas Sutcliffe on the BBC's new Restoration series.

Independent, 11.8.03

'Architects love it because, for all its brutality, it is about the only truly significant, world-class building that Scotland produced in the post-war period' Ruaridh Nicholl on Gillespie, Kidd and Coia's St Peter's Seminary, Cardross. Observer, 3.8.03
