Mr Whippy versus Mr. Blobby: what's happening to architecture?
Plus: what should win the Stirling Prize, but probably won't.
From all over London, you can see it: the curving steel skeleton of Norman Foster's latest tower, on the site of the bomb-blasted Baltic Exchange, forms an unexpected new shape on the London skyline. Or you can go to Manchester and shop in a new Selfridges store where every floor is by a different trophy architect, in a different style. Or visit the architecture Biennale in Venice, where building shapes range from meringues to phalluses. Or look at this year's pick 'n' mix Stirling Prize shortlist. What's happening to architecture? Where exactly is it heading?
Which building should win the 2002 Stirling Prize?
