What's the Mather with ethics and preservation?

  • Comment

With reference to your news feature ('abk slams Mather's Keble college extension', aj 13.1.00), it is hard to believe that a respectable architect of Mather's calibre did not find it correct to correspond with abk on a matter affecting abk's listed building.

We would have thought that is the first step required of architects when involved in work affecting a colleague's listed building.

What has happened to ethics? And what has happened to English Heritage, which listed abk's building? What is the client's position on this?

We are incensed by this attitude of Mather's, whom we respect and admire. Whatever happens, we are not revising that very beautiful drawing of abk's plan because of Mather's plans. We did that drawing ourselves when we worked with abk.
