Fun and games at Guerilla Tactics, the small practice conference at the RIBA, where there was a divide between professionalism and idealism.
Small practitioner Peter Barber said: 'Design flies out the window when the bank manager walks in the door'.
He was reprimanded by chairman Jack Pringle, who said: 'We don't use language like 'unpaid work' here.' The climax was what Pringle described as: 'Architecture's answer to The Weakest Link', which saw Sheppard Robson, PCKO and Buckley Gray Yeoman pitch designs for a £60k house to would-be investors, including Roger Zogolovitch and Ben van Bruggen. Matt Yeoman won with his Modernist mobile home and was cheered for his observation that caravan parks offer an opportunity to replace crap with something better - 'and you don't have to talk to the planners'.
