Hooray – I’m feeling nice and righteous! A piece I wrote about the McLaren Technology Centre was quoted in Deyan Sudjic’s piece in the Observer on Sunday about the Stirling Prize. It was one of the ‘critics say’ quotes about each of the nominated projects: the one attributed to me was, “Part brand, part factory, part … vision of future environments.”

Trouble is that the ellipsis hides an important detail and changes the meaning somewhat. The quote is actually, “Part brand, part factory and part Ron Dennis’s vision of future working environments.”

I really wouldn’t want that building to be a vision of our future…
