  • Comment on: Architype reveals plans for UK’s largest Passivhaus development

    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 .

    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 .
