'Around him hung the valiant daubs of his students, which none the less resemble the results of a village hall amateur watercolour competition. On his mild features was a trace of annoyance at discovering, after taking up the job, that the cash of the many rich benefactors is running out. His problem is this: the craving among the young to know where to put the bukraniaa on a Doric frieze turns out not to exist.' Rowan Moore on Professor Adrian Gale, director of the Prince's Institute. Evening Standard, 30.6.98

'Useless. The miscreant will carry on as before. Already Eyre's report has been 'warmly welcomed' by the opera houses themselves. The kiss of death! The Culture Secretary has promised 'a month of consultation'. That seals the tomb. Then everyone will go on holiday. By the autumn, Eyre will have been forgotten, the opera houses again in crisis. Back to square one.' Richard Morrison. The Times, 3.7.98

'He is a kind of John Fowles of architecture: just as the author of The French Lieutenant's Woman offers us a choice of endings to his story, so Miralles does with his enigmatic buildings.' Jonathan Glancey on Enric Miralles, Guardian, 7.7.98

'This time there was no need for a penalty shoot-out.' Scottish parliament juror Andy McMillan. The Times, 7.7.98

'Not only is this unprecedented; it is a denial of democracy.' Gavin Stamp on Scottish Secretary Donald Dewar's commissioning of a building for the parliament before the institution it is to house exists. The Independent, 7.7.98
