He savaged a range of victims from the Prince of Wales to Richard Seifert, Charles Jencks to the Royal Institute of British Architects, in a career that included stints as editor, academic, writer and designer; as a columnist he wrote for almost every one of the main design magazines including The Architects' Journal, for whom he delivered an unbroken run of 505 weekly contributions.
