What are architects and artists for?
The controversy over David Adjaye and Ron Arad’s winning holocaust memorial proposal exposes a huge flaw in the procurement process that could have been avoided had the jury had more light in the design and art spectrum of experience. All entrants (me being one of them in the team with Rachel Whiteread and Caruso St John) submitted proposals in good faith specific to the site offered and attempted to address the legitimate concern of dominating a small park in central London. Art cannot be designed by committee. Chose a new site and rerun the competition.
