Margate sands

  • Comment

Disappointed entrants to the Turner Centre competition in Margate bombard Astragal with, inter alia, the following complaints: certain shortlisted schemes failed to provide sketch designs, as required in the brief; judges spent an hour discussing whether Zaha Hadid should be included (she wasn't); on average, entries received a mere three minutes consideration. All in the grand tradition of the British architectural competition. You don't know whether to laugh, cry, or take the complaints seriously.
