    Hurry Hurry Hurry - chance to give all your best creative ideas away in the hope of providing possible draughting services and underwriting risk for a D+B contractor.

    I will be launching a competition shortly for the total redesign of my garden - as in all competitions I cannot guarantee to select any of the designs submitted.

    No wonder we are the most lowly paid profession....heigh ho!

  • Comment on: New bid to save Mecanoo's Brum library from becoming 'a shell'

    John Lee's comment 12 January, 2015 10:27 am

    This is a fabulous facility and in my experience very well used across a very diverse community, from high end academic research,
    study areas for individuals and groups, as well as purely social users who are experiencing international quality modern architecture as a really nice place to be!

    The building should be ring-fenced from cuts to retain its value as a centre of civic excellence.

  • Comment on: Alsop hits out at ‘decimation’ of The Public arts centre

    This project was about as 'barmy' as Alsop's vision for the Tuscan hill town that is Barnsley - fortunately that heroic masterpiece didn't get past the blob and squiggle stage so only fees were wasted there.....!

    Heigh Ho!

    I would like to bet the minister has a comfortable home - perhaps several - and like all housing ministers in recent years is clueless about delivering the type and number of homes a reasonably affluent developed nation requires to provide decent living conditions fro all its citizens

    A designer version of the shanty towns on the outskirts of every affluent South African City - Tom Paxton must be spinning in his grave!
