'The result is a fascinating building that undoubtedly raises the standard of city-centre office design, but one that should be regarded as a kind of work-in-progress: a staging post on the way to a more responsible and attractive form of skyscraper' Jonathan Glancey on Foster's Swiss Re. Guardian, 8.12.03

'Does anybody care today that the Pope did not hold an open competition for the Sistine ceiling? We should insist on salvaging this most important of public projects from a compromise that leads to banality. Let's start again - this time, the right way' Michael Kimmelman on the WTC memorial competition. New York Times, 7.12.03

'The London skyline is a chapter of accidents, a scarred, tragic parody of development control' Simon Jenkins. Evening Standard, 11.12.03

'It's one man's mission to understand the universe with the help of his wife and mother-in-law' Kim Wilkie on Charles Jencks' Portrack garden. Spectator, 6.12.03
