  • "Why we must build the V&A's dream"
    -- "It won't be long before the Guggenheim exerts its gravitational pull on the English language and gives us an epithet to describe architecture so powerful that it over-whelms criticism. Mayors and despots the world over will have taken note, and soon wannabe 'bilbaos' will be springing up in every time zone." (les_98.11.17)

    • "V&A's 'crumpled box' extension gets surprise nod"
      -- "A controversial futuristic design for the proposed extension to the Victoria and Albert Museum was backed by borough planners who overturned advice from officials." (itn_98.11.17)

    • "The V&A Spiral gets go-ahead"
      -- "The furturistic white zigzag design known as the Victoria & AlbertMuseum Spiral Extension could be built by 2004." (Bar-Hillel M, les_98.11.17)

  • "At Play With Space and Its Ideal Proportions"
    -- "The architect got to name his own building. There's not a donor's plaque in sight." (Herbert Muschamp, nyt_98.11.08)
  • "New row erupts over museum"
    -- "... the 1970s concept was for a challenging and sometimes controversial presentation of Australia's history. ... Now, he said, it had become a Disneyland tourist facility." (Emeritus Professor John Mulvaney in Hogarth M, age_98.11.08)

  • "Mitterrand's Last Whim Struggles With Reality"
    -- "A library that in English might be called a lemon." (Riding A, nyt_98.11.07)

  • "Getty Center architect favored for S.J. City Hall"
