Prescott opens AJ stand at MIPIM

  • Comment

John Prescott has opened the AJ's UK Architecture stand at MIPIM. Speaking on the stand on Tuesday (8 March), the deputy prime minister spoke of the importance of architecture to his regeneration policies.

He also singled out CABE for particular praise, saying the design watchdog helped his decision making.

'You can't cut corners when you're building something that makes communities proud and so congratulations to CABE for all its advice, ' he said.

'I take a lot of notice of what CABE feels about a project, even if the final judgment is subjective.

'When I was first in Milwaukee I saw Calatrava's art museum. I didn't know I could get that feeling from a building.

And good architecture should get people arguing about it, ' he added.
