  • Comment on: Rogers renews attack on garden city plans

    john edward meagher's comment 24-Nov-2014 7:34 pm

    Richard Rogers is absolutly correct , I live in Dublin which expanded out into the countryside resulting in Ghost Towns , long commuting , resulting in enviromental pollution , human stress and misery , while the city is full of brownfield sites , I am afraid politicians and planners alike simply do not understand ordinary common sense !!

    Anyone proposing to plant trees in any city should be actively encouraged no matter where the trees are to be planted , nature does not need us , we need it ! John Meagher FRIAI RIBA

    Anyone who has experienced Steven Holl's Museum of Contemporary Art in Helsinki , a city rich with Architectural gems will concludeu up that he should not be permitted to build anything near St Barts ! John Meagher , FRIAI. RIBA

    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 .
