Adjaye and Arad’s ‘eleventh-hour’ holocaust memorial redesign fails to silence critics


I suspect that this is the future for all such public-domain commissions, public, charitable and private. The great and good decide something should be built, prepare a lazy brief for probably the wrong site; don't check out key stakeholders, desert the winning design, and then vacate the debating area to the doubters and self-important. It might be a good idea to reduce a tonne of funding to a lot of Quangos, so they stick to their fundamental terms of reference.
