    An excellent result.

    I love Darbishire Place and I'd love to see inside, but it's University of Greenwich for mine.

    It makes the most of a difficult site, it's beautifully scaled and responds well to its context. There is some shoddy detailing but I expect that had nothing to do with the architect. It' a building I enjoy walking around when I'm that part of London.

    There are some very hip people in Preston!

    Trying to promote environmental engineering is difficult. It's mostly invisible, nearly impossible to photograph, and the only time people are aware of it is when it doesn't work properly. It's a tough sell.

    The engineers I work with received Ken's roast well, but took it very much in the spirit it was intended. We work with architects who really value the experience and expertise that engineers bring. Indeed, we choose to ONLY work with such firms. I've sat in many meetings to discuss prospective work and time and again we've knocked back work because 'that architect doesn't really value what we bring'.

    If Ken had simply said, 'yes, we need to be more collaborative and recognise the efforts of environmental services engineers', then we wouldn't be having this conversation so publicly. Plaudits to CIBSE. And to Ken. I think he got the message right, even if you disagree with the delivery. And frankly, well done to Hattie and AJ for even turning up on the night. That's a victory for the engineers in itself.

    p.s. - I work in the Communications team at Max Fordham. I'm not an engineer but I help them tell their story. The coverage of ken's address has been a fillip for the profession. I can't help but see that as a good thing.

  • Comment on: Stirling Prize odds shake-up in favour of O'Donnell & Tuomey

    The money came in because no-one could believe the odds were so long in the first place, surely. A worthy winner here.
