who said what

'We wanted it to look cuddly and friendly like a bouncy dog. It wants you to play with it' Colin Fournier on his and Peter Cook's Kunsthaus Graz, now just open.

Times, 16.9.03

'These results show clearly what we have long suspected: that the housebuilders' special pleading for more greenfield land is not borne out by the facts. Far from being a land shortage, too much countryside is still in the pipeline for development' CPRE director of policy Neil Sinden on the stocks of unused land held by the UK's 17 largest housebuilders. Guardian, 22.9.03

'I don't know how long London's politicians have been mouthing off about the Thames, but it wouldn't surprise me if Claudius, the first Roman emperor to rule Britain, had declared it to be the city's most underused asset' Rowan Moore. Evening Standard, 16.9.03

'It belongs to a provincial town with pretensions, not architecturally assured London. It is like a 1980s banker in a loud suit trying to mingle with old-fashioned gents about town' Jonathan Glancey on Quinlan Terry's Baker Street office block. Guardian, 22.9.03
