who said what

'London's ultimate example of the great building project that never seems to happen - an epic of visions and disappointments, its time span equal to that of the Iliad and Odyssey combined' Rowan Moore on Battersea Power Station. Evening Standard, 30.9.03

'A Millennium Dome with green leaves instead of acrobats, set in an out-of-the-way location whose transport connections make the Greenwich peninsula look like Oxford Circus' A leader on the likely closure of Foster's National Botanic Garden of Wales. Evening Standard, 1.10.03

'The Midland Hotel, Morecambe, one of Britain's finest examples of Art Deco, is threatened with destruction. How much more sensible to eat shrimps in a lovely building than to struggle to make a building in the shape of a shrimp' Christopher Hirst on the V&A's 'Zoomorphic' show.

Independent, 4.10.03

'Towards the end of his life Le Corbusier was in very peculiar territory, which I take great encouragement from' Will Alsop. IoS, 5.10.03
