The tone of your article 'Zaha Faced 'Two-Weekfl Threat' (AJ 12.10.06) gives a misleading impression of the excellent working relationship the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) has with Zaha Hadid Architects.

The ODA has worked through a design development stage with Zaha Hadid Architects in recent months to ensure the Aquatics Centre design better reects the site constraints of its location in the Olympic Park. It has been very productive and has led to significant improvements to the scheme which will be made public later this autumn. Challenge, discussion and debate between designer and client are always part and parcel of any healthy development process and this has been no different.

The result, as ODA chairman Jack Lemley is quoted as saying in your piece, is a magnificent scheme which we hope will set the standard for other designs in the Olympic Park.

David Higgins, chief executive, Olympic Delivery Authority
