Division of opinion


Next year's AIA convention is being held in Los Angeles; last year's was in Chicago, the year before's in San Diego. When does the east coast get a look in? There is a suggestion that the conference venues reflect a deep-seated split in the psyche of the US profession. The east coast has always regarded architecture as a very separate discipline, while the rest of the country has been more accustomed to multidisciplinary and collaborative working. This is the view of AIA veteran Jim Scheeler, who is researching a history of the institute. When will the RIBA do something similar?
