It doesn't work like that though, the architect needs to be involved throughout the construction period, signing off working drawings at every stage up to completion certificate. Anyway, any PR that associates one of the worlds leading Stadium designers with Everton FC. Can't be a bad thing can it ?
It feels a bit staged to be honest.
I have no doubt he will deliver a stadium we will love, but it's just all a bit... cringe. Not this specific thing as he's being interviewed about the stadiums he is involved in, but he fucking loves Twitter (as his "likes" from last year when he was staying in the titanic will testify to) and has a bit of an ego.
I guess what I'm saying is that I don't think I'd like him if I met him, but that I respect his work. So I'd like to see more of his work and less of him.
