Why do competitions bring out the worst in clients? Stateside, the Carnegie Science Center has caused trouble by inviting three of five shortlisted architects to do more work but not the other two - even though they are still in the competition. The two are more than capable of causing a fuss:
they are Peter Eisenman and Bernard Tschumi, who now say they will withdraw unless they too are offered an extra $25,000 to do more work, making them equal with Ben van Berkel, Jean Nouvel and Danny Libeskind (it's that man again). Nice to know it doesn't just happen here. . .
