Anything but superficial

A portrait of failed criticism


Under that clever title, Architects Without Frontiers chief Andrew Mackenzie reviews recent commentary in  ArchitectureAU, on ARM Architecture's Portrait building in Melbourne, Australia.  He finds the critical discourse 'marred by racial profiling, pedantry and unsubstantiated opinion'.  And I have to agree with him.

As often happens, thebest thing I can do is point you at MacKenzie's excellent and readable article.  Click here to access. 

But it's worth adding a little more information not highlighted in MacKenzie's piece.
