Integral design

  • Comment

Richard Coleman attracted a good crowd to the launch of his 'Integrity' exhibition at the Architecture Foundation, which included brief speeches by Lord Rogers, Richard MacCormac and the AJ's Paul Finch. 'The older I get the less I like about old buildings, ' declared Lord Rogers, in a pretty dismissive criticism of the heritage tendency.

MacCormac found it deeply depressing that there could be an assumption that we cannot risk designing new buildings for fear that they will be worse than those of the past. The exhibition of six London projects where Coleman was adviser suggests that today's architects are full of quality and invention.Worth a visit.
