    Very sad news. I was lucky enough to be tutored by Colin at Portsmouth School of Architecture where he was a true master. Whilst the 1980s saw many local authorities selling off their property departments to the highest bidder, Sir Colin and his team at Hampshire showed there was another way. They created some truly inspirational buildings where excellence in design and quality of light and space were the key drivers - not profit. The fact that these projects were often realised through relatively modest budgets is testament to the skills of Sir Colin as an architect.

    Michael Gove take note. A visionary award winning architect who designed inspirational schools that represented excellent value for money.
