Sound-bite debate does architecture no favours

  • Comment

Piers Gough's phrase 'GM Modernism' is smart enough to enter the critical canon but also a rather cheap shot. One so intelligent must know how reductive and damaging soundbite debate is in architecture.

Iconic buildings; do they exist, does it matter? This flurry only occupies a void left by more pertinent questions, such as why has the reception of Modernism in this country always been so wishy-washy? On the other hand, is the legacy of Cedric Price best served by blobs and decorated boxes? Etc, etc? Matthew Wells, via email
