Jeremy Melvin delivered a thoughtful talk on the architectural-historical background to the Potteries, noting the dominance of the section in none-too-subtle layers, emerging in various university buildings, including the one we were sitting in; the attitude to open-endedness essentially lay in the fact that the section could go marching on for ever - to no great effect. He also noted the interesting question of how Cedric's ideas gave rise to a certain aesthetic expression: indeterminacy and the nature of change found an architect with an artist's idea and a very strong visual sensibility. Then Steve Mullin, 'chief assistant' in the Price office, delivered a mixture of office anecdote and precise analysis of the challenges the project presented, and how they were approached. Mullin's contribution was a fascinating first-hand account of what it was really like at the time. Happily the event was recorded, with nice contributions from Fred Manson, Roger Zogolovitch, Peter Murray, Mary Banham, Stephen Gage, Patrick Keiller and many others.
