Custom standard


A splendid seminar at the Building Centre saw Michael Stacey, Rab Bennetts and Alex de Rijke discussing component design, and their attitudes to customisation/ standardisation. It was followed by the opening of the excellent small exhibition on the subject on the ground floor of the BC. All the exhibits are covered in Perspex or firmly nailed down. This follows the recent theft from the Foster exhibition at the British Museum of a big section of handrail showing what had been designed for the Millennium bridge. Rather flattering in its way.
