Discovering what is already there

As the future for the arts in this fair city (of road schemes) begins to darken, I turn my attention as everyone does at this time of year to those 'Best of 2012' lists to see what I missed, undervalued or am pleased to see caught someone else's eye.

Architecture critic Rowan Moore's choices are only known to me in photographic form (at time of writing, but here's hoping). As I glanced down the list I found in his advice or plea to architects (and or planners) "discovering what is already there" an echo of something I have believed in for years past. I'm grateful for any support.
