How refreshing to find Philip Webb being cited with such reverence by Caruso St John. (AJ 06.10.05). I have long since thought it a shame that the brightest and best British architects seem so intent on ignoring or burying the rich decorative traditions that are such a key part of our heritage.

I recently visited one of the London schools of architecture and was shocked to discover that 'decoration' seems to have become a perjorative term.
