Is the new Design Museum the ‘cathedral’ Terence Conran claims it is?


'From the ground-floor reception space, one sees virtually the whole of the roof structure and much of the Brutalist concrete buttressing – an impossibility in the original building, whose interior was relatively cluttered with elliptical voids, perimeter elements, and stair-bridges.' A curious assertion, refuted by my own pictures - taken during Open House a few years ago - and indeed the 1963 review you link to.
