"Ah, it’s the fucking enemy."

BD has some kind words for Alsops newest – the Queen Mary Medical School Building in Whitechapel – but the architect doesn’t exactly return the favor.

    Alsop has found a subject that generates the sense of awe and puzzlement that many feel about his architecture. Art and science: for Alsop it could be a happy combination for the future.

The sculptural forms shown above – meeting rooms and an education center – are suspended within the simple volume of the school building. Beautiful. In my opinon, a lot of contemporary architecture just feels too sterile. I almost never bother buying a magazine these days – all the pictures look identical. Now I know I’m a whore for all things Alsop, and although I don’t agree with all his methods, he’s a damn exciting guy and it’s nice to see someone breathing some life into the industry.

More choice words from Mr. Alsop.
