Hello, I'm the man who wrote the Zaha piece. Originally published in The Sunday Times, London (for whom I am the architecture critic), and then on my website,

As to why it keeps popping up everywhere, I think that's just the way the web works. Presumably people see it and pass it on to other people for comment. Zaha is a hot architect, which would explain why this piece has got more coverage than some.

What's always interesting is to see how perceptions change as the discussions progress. There seems to be an idea around now that I trashed Hadid's art center in Cincinnati. No - I liked it, and said so. But what I did do was suggest that Cincinnati as a city was, um, somewhat lacking. That it was urbanistically a mess. It was this rather than my appraisal of the Hadid building that caused a faint buzzing on the airwaves, particularly from people living in Cincinnati.
