I was pleased to see Penoyre & Prasad's new Moorfields Eye Hospital building featured in AJ 26.04.07. It looks great, appears to function well and is a good civic addition to Islington.

I was less pleased with Alan Dunlop's review, which was rather begrudging in its praise, and committed the cardinal sin of blowing one's own trumpet! The first four paragraphs describe Dunlop's own work and his approach to designing for sensory impairment. It left this reader with the impression that he considers himself something of an expert at this type of project and that he would have done something better. This is both unfair and irrelevant, as is his withering final sentence: 'RDCEC is not cutting-edge architecture - but then I suppose it doesn't need to be.'

What is Dunlop really trying to say? Can't the AJ edit reviews like this?
