Does banal building deserve AJ coverage?

  • Comment

The article on Stephenson Bell and Sheppard Robson's convention centre in Manchester surprised me. So it is described as 'contemporary but unshowy', 'purposefully plain', 'bodging' and 'reasonable' (AJ 15.3.01).

Alfred Waterhouse would be appalled. With such criticism it rather begs the question: why bother including such a banal and badly built building in your magazine?
