'An ersatz urban cliff, a giant sea anemone, a friendly, blob-like alien, the mother of all magic mushrooms, this is the department store as unalloyed architectural entertainment' Jonathan Glancey on Future Systems' Birmingham Selfridges. Guardian, 1.9.03

'Centre Point is a perfectly good tower. It is what happens at street level that offends me: the building has absolutely no regard for pedestrians, and the result is a complete denigration of public space. No building should be allowed to behave like this' Will Palin, assistant curator at the Soane Museum.

Guardian, 1.9.03

'If Zumthor's spa recaptures the grandeur of Roman baths, Grimshaw's is one large Jacuzzi' Giles Worsley on Grimshaw's New Royal Baths at Bath.
