Who emerges as the Millennium Architect of the Year? Without doubt Lord Foster. While nothing quite matches the Reichstag triumph of last year in political importance, 2000 has seen the greatest, if most controversial, series of completions in Foster and Partners' history (memorably celebrated at a massive 1,000person party in the East End a fortnight ago). The British Museum Great Court, the Welsh Glass House and the Millennium Bridge have all been the subject of countless acres of newsprint, radio and TV coverage. In addition, there have been almost as many headlines over the Greater London Authority 'glass bubble' building; the 'erotic gherkin', and the threatened Wembley Stadium project, a truly fine building which deserves to be built.
