  • Comment on: Reaction to Hadid's Stirling Prize win: 'There was a collective groan'

    Pedro Silmon's comment 2-Oct-2011 7:56 pm

    Speaking as a relative outsider: watching the Stirling Prize on TV this evening, not having had any prior inkling of who and whose building had won, there was no doubt in my mind that Zaha Hadid's Grace Academy stood out a mile. This is a building solely about user and client. Brixton was sorely in need of something to feel proud of – that it is a showy piece of architecture is an asset in this instance. In any case, what could be more showy than a velodrome for the 2012 Olympics?

  • Comment on: 'Shameful shoe-boxes': Yorkshire's new homes smallest in RIBA survey

    It isn't only the inside living areas that are shrinking, the outside space allotted to new houses is also far less than in previous decades, when even if your house was a bit cramped you could at least have a wander around the garden. Pedro Silmon
