I can't say I'm tottering under the impact of Astragal's pair of gentle jibes (aj 20.4.00), but two points are worth making. The first is that I have made no financial gain from Zombory-Moldovan Moore for nearly six years, so the Evening Standard's modest recommendation is hardly improper. The other is that, in springing to epr's defence, Astragal recalls that the practice did a Post-Modern and a Modernist scheme for Hammersmith at its client's request, as part of the latter's ducking and weaving through the planning process. I can't see how this is evidence of their towering architectural integrity. Both schemes, as it happens, were dreadful.
