"Hyde's book confronts ugliness head on, using it as a way to
interrogate British architectural discourse. . . . [His] research
on the individual case studies is impeccable."---Richard J.
Williams, Times Higher Education
"To call out ugliness, then, is a call to arms. While beauty basks lazily ad uselessly in its own perfection, ugliness spurs us into action."---Igor Toronyi-Lalic, The Spectator
"Discussions such as those effectively summarised in Ugliness and Judgement are so instructive when we evaluate how to apply concepts of beauty and ugliness in architectural debates."---Alexander Adams, Salisbury Review
