Nation of vandals

Sir: I sympathise with John Cundill (letter, 4 October) in his criticism of John Gummer's calling for well-mannered architecture in our cities. As a current witness to my neighbour's systematic ruination of a fine Arts and Crafts house with replacement windows etc, I can think of no better quotation than that of our great Edwardian architect Sir Edwin Lutyens, who said: "The public don't know and don't really care a dog's leg about architecture."
