    Pity design quality comes last.

  • Comment on: Stephen Hodder: 'The Palestinian issue made me ill'

    The Palestinian issue may have made Stephen Hodder ill, and he is a weak man to have admitted that, but the failure of the RIBA to slap the wrist to the Israeli architects' Association has no doubt allowed the building of illegal "settlements" and the demolition of Palestinians' homes to increase.

    That is what should be making him ill.

    It would be interesting to see the number of votes as a percentage of membership, and per candidate.

  • Comment on: The housing crisis: how did we get here?

    Lack of supply is the number one. Lack of political will as so much is invested in wealth creation by rising house prices. Unlike any other modern economy, ours would fail if we increased supply of houses, thus lowering prices, and the "Wealth" of those marginal voters.

    If the supply was good, competition would start solving the other problems.

    But that would need political will, and some brain cells, both in acute short supply.

  • Comment on: Architect rethinks plans for threatened East End oddity

    Given that over the years the owners have ripped off the roof, removed al internal walls and floors, and the shop-front element, the architects have little left to play with.
    The value of the building is its expression of the power of the small business against the large.
    A power perhaps gone, now that local and national government can side with the developers to purchase property compulsorily.
