'We shows results where possible, ' says the RIBA

I reply to Andrew Good's letter, 'We should see all the results of competition' (AJ 24.6.04). The exhibition to which Mr Good refers was organised by the client as part of a public consultation exercise to gauge local response to shortlisted schemes. It was carried out as an exercise to help inform the assessment process and not as an opportunity for competitors to view the work of other contenders. The schemes on display were not annotated with practice names so its purpose as an event to inform fellow competitors would have had limited value.

Whenever possible, the RIBA Competitions Office actively encourages clients to hold an exhibition of, if not all, at least shortlisted schemes and those awarded prizes. Such an exhibition would be held at the end of the competitive process so that the names of authors could be attached to schemes and those selected for prizes and commendations identified.

A copy of the assessor's report is soon due to be issued to all competitors taking part in the Bedford project and this will contain images of the winning and shortlisted schemes.
