The Prince of Wales: Right or Wrong? - An Architect Replies

The Prince of Wales: Right or Wrong? - An Architect Replies

by Maxwell Hutchinson (Author), RichardRogers (Foreword)

Synopsis

The Prince of Wales warned the architectural profession that he wanted to "stir things up, to throw a proverbial Royal brick through the inviting plate glass of pompous professional pride". His views, widely aired on television and subsequently published, have attracted enormous popular support. Architects once again find themselves under siege from the general public - with a new and influential champion. Arguing that the debate instigated by Prince Charles has been one sided, the author attempts to show that the arguments against his profession have been fuelled by ignorance and prejudice. High rise housing failed, it is argued, because architects were "not" involved, and community architecture, glamourised by the Prince, has drowned in it's own publicity according to the author.
