Your claim that I would 'step down from the top job at the London Architecture Biennale' ( ajplus 11.05.06) rather dramatises an off-the-cuff comment and I thought I should reassure you that I fully intend to stay involved with the Biennale in 2008. I just think that someone else should be director. Four years is quite enough for one person; an event like this continually needs new ideas - after all, the director of the Venice Biennale changes with every show.

If we are to ensure the Biennale continues to exist we need to create firm foundations for its future; the disappointing level of funding from the Arts Council and Creative London means that we need to evaluate long-term plans and that my energies - with the support of the committee - might be better used in helping to set up the platform from which future Biennales can grow.
