We can add the refusal of the Lottery authorities (for the second time) to fund the Daniel Libeskind 'Spiral' at the V&A Museum to the British establishment's sorry history of Deconstructionist architecture. The Hadid opera house, the Behnisch building in Bristol, then in quick succession Libeskind's Imperial War Museum (built without Lottery cash) and the V&A job. What's the problem? When you look at some of the work by big-name UK architects, who reserved their most mundane efforts for Lottery-funded projects, it makes you wonder. Is it simply distrust of 'foreigners'?
