Architect slams ‘dismal’ UK design – The Guardian

The Guardian reports

“Andres Duany flew in from America and yesterday unveiled a 64-point litany of mistakes made by British architects and planners over the last 50 years.

Duany is one of the original designers of Poundbury, the prince’s new town in Dorset, and said the leading lights of modernist architecture including Richard Rogers, Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid and Peter Eisenman were “increasingly irrelevant”.”
