Since 1984, Prince Charles has been an outspoken advocate (and sometimes enemy) of architecture. Recently, he’s has tried to remove Jean Nouvel as designer of a major new shopping center near Saint Paul’s Cathedral. At other times, he has pushed for work like Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown’s postmodern classical wing at the National Gallery (above). Through all, Charles has been rather firm in his belief in good architecture. The Guardian has produced a slide show overview of the Prince and Architecture. Highlights, battles, and low lights all included. Check it out here.
