No dilution

One of the great things about the Bartlett in Cook's time there was the decision to buck the system by playing everything by the rules, instead of ignoring them. The effect had been to expose, to some extent, those schools playing by the same rules that weren't doing very well. 'Fingers to the others, ' said Cook, though he didn't mean Sheffield (head of school Jeremy Till was present). The Bartlett should remind itself, whoever takes over and whatever the ethos of the place might be in the future, that 'it can be done'. It was essential to have a broad vision, said this selfdescribed 'professor architectural enthusiast'; he would rather the school went in a direction he disliked but did it really well, than ending up as a diluted version of its current condition.
