  • Comment on: Holl's Glasgow School of Art set to open

    john edward meagher's comment 13-Feb-2014 12:57 pm

    How right William J.Curtis is in his criticism of Steven Holl's building , I am sure many readers will be familiar with his very unsuccessful Museum of Contemporary Art , Mannerheimintie , Helsinki , apart altogether from its siting , which one can only blame Helsinki City , the building does nothing for the great tradition of building which Helsinki has , Sarrinen, Aalto to mention just two architects whose contribution to that city is outstanding . it make me sad constantly to see so many rather inadequate buildings being constructed around the world , does anyone take architecture seriously any longer ? , we seem to get a sort of constructed CGI kind of architecture all the time rather than real serious stuff !

    Congratulations to Kenneth Frampton , his writings and lectures have influenced me for decades , His contributions to Architecture and Building Culture are of the greatest importance and young architects might listen to him more carefully to improve their knowlege of the the Art of building .
