Dezeen Wire:
author and curator Stephen Bayley has written a savage review of the Victoria & Albert museum's current exhibition of Postmodern design and architecture, which he describes as "a revived chamber of horrors." - The Architect's Newspaper

In his article, Bayley calls Robert Venturi's extension to the National Gallery in London "a pitiably ill-proportioned and architecturally illiterate dollop of pious schmaltz," and dismissively concludes that the exhibition is "a lot of tired one-liners, as fatigued as old newspapers."
