Congratulations to Shelly , Yvonne and Team ! John Meagher .
Almost daily I open the AJ to a headline of Zaha that , Zaha this etc etc , So boring , are there any other architects , perhaps some who are not in the self promotion business , just plain good people doing nice interesting work ! John Meagher

Comment on: Chipperfield bags £100k Praemium Imperiale
I send congratulations to both Antony Gormley and David Chipperfield whose work I greatly admire , I think it is very appropriate that they should honoured together in the same year . John Meagher .

Another crappy " landmark " from that guy ! How crazy is the world ? John m.
I completely agree with the previous opinion , Ted Harris , this kind of nonsense is going on worldwide , this country is full of very able sensitive architects , why do we need more of this kind of behaviour , the recent scheme by R Piano for Ronchamp shows just how bad things like this can get ! John Meagher .
At long last , how good to see somebody tackling the issue of proper standards to suburban houses and their site planning , I wish the group every success , this country ( Ireland ) is marred by substandard housing layouts and simply awful house designs which never take any regard for orientation , open space etc never mind the matter of insulation or Passivhaus principals or prefabrication .

As a minion in the office of Venturi Rauch ScottBrown in 1969-1970 I recall well the contribution of Denise with her husband Bob and partner Steve Izenour to the making of the publication Learning from Las Vegas and concur with her and Bob that she should be recognised by the honor recieved by the Pritzker Prize , I have no doubt this matter will be rectified , for without her contribution this work may simply not exist . John Meagher FRIAI RIBA .
Shelia is a wonderful person and a very inventive sensitive architect whose work responds to the user and the environment - nature , nature being most important as it does not need us but we need it . She deserves this accolade . John Meagher , deBlacam and Meagher Architects .
