    True Dat. My bad. (I wrote the brief!)

    The article is researched the AJ news desk - there is no single author. I'm sorry you think the piece is nasty Sutherland. Amuch of the material within it is drawn from information in the public domain and any criticisms have been balanced with praise. It's fairly typical of a profile format.

    Thank you Walter, for your very thoughtful commentary.

    Ian: no - not as yet. Our website has been optimised for your mobile however. And our own research has shown most architects use Apple rather than windows or android tablets.

  • Comment on: Skyline campaign: Prospects and views

    Thank you for your comments Robert. All of our campaigns – Women in Architecture, More Homes Better Homes and now Skyline – argue in favour of raising standards, whether in terms of a fair working environment, a better quality of housing provision, or a more thoughtful approach to building tall. On the whole, I believe most architects, whether in the AJ100 or not, share these aspirations and while there is always more any business can do to improve – and that includes AJ too – it is also reasonable to celebrate success where it occurs, hence our passion for the AJ100 Awards. In any case, a strong critical culture is good for business - more often than not it inspires innovation. As for your comments regarding height – it’s a good one: ultimately it’s all relative – apparently the first use of the term skyscraper was applied to steel framed buildings just 10 stories high. We’ve gone with Peter Murray’s definition however, and the research NLA published for its London’s Growing Up! Exhibition. about planned tall buildings for the capital.
