Letter: Resurrection of Crystal Palace

Click to follow
From Mr David Lloyd

Sir: While welcoming the Millennium Commissioners' plans to fund large- scale projects to mark the advent of a new century, I do find it very sad that one such scheme involves the rebuilding of the Crystal Palace. We will never move forward as a country or as a society as long as we continually seek to look to the past for our architectural, spiritual and political inspiration. By all means, let's treasure the old buildings we already have, but not build more of them.

Yours faithfully,

David Lloyd
