Suitably from another planet no mention of sculpture within the scheme has been mentioned, and any requests to Wilkinson Eye for this have been ignored.
Where does collaboration with sculptors/sculpture fit in Make?
Comment on: Libeskind and AIA join RIBA Israel row
Intriguing how this motion by RIBA has suddenly arrived on their radar. Perhaps RIBA and the detractors study the history and that especially of the British Mandate. I certainly hear not a squeak regarding Syria, but then perhaps many RIBA members are awaiting their opportunity to obtain lucrative commissions for rebuilding in the distant future.
Regarding the Jewish signatories especially upholding RIBA's stance they are but apologists, and it seems to me they have been less than vociferous on other 'human rights blights'. Others who have also supported the stance I ask the following. Why have you and RIBA suddenly now agreed to the motion, if you are all so very concerned its it bit late is it not?
It is admirable that Lewisham Council's lien on this scheme be removed. However for all the current governments statements that planning delays and red tape be removed, it is plain to see it has failed. Our counterparts in Europe and the elsewhere just get on with large schemes, and the results are there to be seen. That the site has laid dormant for 14 years, a stain in the area, just confirms this.
