Jacob Voorthuis in his review of The Good Cause on Archined: "The highlight of the exhibition is, as far as I'm concerned, a profound interview with Gerd Junne, professor emeritus of International Relations from the University of Amsterdam. He explains with precision, in a matter of fact way and with considerable insight at the same time, the precarious situation architects and urban designers find themselves in. He sketches their possibilities and limitations, but above all he's able to indicate the importance of architecture and urbanism in the reconstruction of people's lives. Without drama, patiently and with much empathy, he walks us through the main factors, giving the visitor a broad view of the unbelievable complexity of such assignments."
