I'm greatly disappointed to read that Richard MacCormac will not be completing the BBC's flagship project at Broadcasting House (AJ 27.10.05). This is a project that promises so much, with the sections completed to date suggesting a work of great quality would emerge. This is on the back of the corporation undermining David Chipperfield's project in Glasgow and having apparently gone cold on Foreign Office Architect's proposals at White City.

Completed work by MacCormac, Chipperfield and Foreign Office would greatly enhance the BBC estate. So why has the BBC failed to deliver on its commitment to architectural patronage and quality?
