RIBA Journal

Here's a review from the RIBA Journal (July 2008) by Grant Gibson. I like it.

I have to say I caught my breath when described as a cross between Michael Moore and Sir Keith Joseph (two more reprehensible characters in modern history, I struggle to bring to mind) but Grant makes some valid criticisms:


Mind you, I have to say that I think it's a peculiar wishful thinking to suggest that the environmental consensus is cracking simply because Alastair Darling has refused to put two pence a litre on petrol prices. Actually, having read the article, I think that that is a far more strained example than my Libya one (at least, in the book, I said that I was using the Libya example as a rhetorical device).
