Welsh architect Gareth Pearce has pledged to appeal following the failure of his plagiarism case against Rem Koolhaas.Pearce's latest fight to prove the Dutch architect's Rotterdam Kunsthall is based on his own designs follows the ruling last week of the Architects Registration Board's professional conduct committee, which cleared his expert witness Michael Wilkey of misconduct.

Pearce said he would appeal on the basis of the Wilkey ruling as well on new evidence about the conduct of the judge who heard the case last November (AJ 8.11.01).Koolhaas is understood to have successfully recovered his costs from the Legal Aid board.'He owes this country £1 million, ' Pearce said. 'And I want my £457,000 fees.'
