The Observer: "Exhibition Road, London – review"

Link to web site

"The thing about public space is that it is public, which means that potentially anyone can have a say in it. It is prone to vociferous objectors: another Moylan-Rogers project – for rearranging the traffic in Sloane Square – was shot down by opponents whom Moylan, who is not shy of speaking his mind, calls 'determined and mendacious' and 'completely hysterical'.

So it is, in other words, very difficult to lay a pavement, at least one that is different from all the others, but Exhibition Road is finally there. It's a special case, in that few streets in Britain can match its cultural load, but its essential principles can be transferred to more modest places. At such time as other local authorities have the money to do work like this again, it shows how it can be done."
