  • Comment on: Revealed: new home for Royal Scottish National Orchestra

    It puzzles me that prior to the mid 20c, buildings in general were simply commissioned by clients and designed by architects. Generally they were not procured; so some buildings were extraordinary (if circumstances allowed), others were not. That’s the way Glasgow was made, and until recently it seemed to work just fine? What’s gone wrong?

  • Comment on: RIBA trade mission: small practices bid for Chinese foothold

    To help small and medium sized firms? From the south east of England... How and who selected the practices on this RIBA trade mission? Who is paying for them to travel and spend six days in China touting for work? UKTI?

  • Comment on: Britain in Venice: ‘It feels right to try something new’

    That research in the global field is an essential context for procuring and designing architectural projects in the UK, I still can't help but feel that to showcase our awe at foregin architectural and cultural achievements (my own first thought being some of the housing at Orestad in Copenhagen) when we - ourselves - are on show to that international field is somewhat defeatist. I mean, the modesty is becoming and rather British and all but... we're boldly attempting to think about trying when everyone else is achieving?? - Gordon Hulley
