'A bore of a building that wants you to think it's having fun. This is architecture as novelty prize marrow'

Adrian Searle on Foster's Albion Riverside development. Guardian, 1.7.04

'The simplicity of the new memorial does seem pretty remote from her personal aesthetic. Evidence from Andrew Morton's latest work suggests that if the fountain were truly to reflect her taste it should be cheered up with splashes of blue and yellow, and perhaps a line of china rabbits hopping gaily around a gilded rim'

Catherine Bennett on the Diana memorial fountain. Guardian, 1.7.04

'Net result? High-quality public space. Step back a few yards and the silver-grey pavilions all but dematerialise. This is selfless architecture'

Hugh Pearman applauds Stanton Williams' Tower of London Environs Scheme.

Sunday Times, 4.7.04

'There is nothing like an architectural competition to cheer up a board of museum trustees. Rather than worry about fund-raising, exhibition programmes and audiences, it can bask in the flattering attentions of a worldwide collection of architects attempting to charm themsleves into a job. The fact that there is usually no money to build seems not to worry either party'

Deyan Sudjic. The Art Newspaper, July 2004
