Victoria Harris, the head honcho of charity Architects 4 Aid, was in a playful mood at the AJ100 breakfast in Claridges last week.

Harris took the opportunity to tell the assembled grandees from some of the country’s biggest practices about how the charity has donated £1 million pounds worth of architects’ time to help rebuild communities around the world. She went on to describe the latest project under construction including one which, because of the lack of materials, is relying on human urine to produce bricks. Not one to miss a can-rattle, she concluded: ‘Donations of any sort gratefully received.’
