  • Comment on: Body building: Invisible Studio’s gym at Hadspen House

    Hmmm's comment 15 October, 2019 12:29 pm

    I’ve no doubt the author will be able to justify this somewhat cliched solution to his brief but don’t add insult to injury by attacking Niall Hobhouse through the technique of damning with faint praise vis comments about ‘magpie approach’ by comparing this piece of rustic bling to what was built beforehand

    He is a rare supporter of architecture as cultural endeavour in a land generally devoid of such people unless as a requirement to justify some narcissistic form throwing or in pursuit of political gain

  • Comment on: Casper Mueller Kneer director reprimanded by ARB

    Hmmm's comment 4 October, 2019 10:23 am

    It’s a difficult call, how many architects have been caught out on what at first seemed to be a simple exercise possibly delivered with little real financial benefit which turns into a many headed hydra one of which is called the ARB in this instance

    Interesting to note that the client seem to have determined the contractors appointment without due regard to her repudiatory behaviour to the architect, was this acknowledged by the ARB

    I’ve yet to find a clause in any architects appt’ forms which relates to this event which is not actually that uncommon

    I’d love to know if the ARB receives complaints which are then found in the architects favour as I never get any announcements if this is the case

    Let’s play guess the shortlist! The usual suspects plus a couple of young upstarts so the commissioning body can claim to be forward thinking whilst making a predictable decision behind closed doors

    Why is the UK so obsessed with prequalification? Is there any real evidence of any benefit in this methodology other than for the consultants employed to manage the process?
