Paul Finch's comments
That is to say I agree with Mr Iddon’s welcome praise. I’m afraid I don’t see the logic in Mr Walsh’s novel proposition.
I agree with this!
Direct approaches to building owners or occupiers, whether public or private, looks like a good approach— and architects/designers will be able to cite what they have done in their own studios as test-bed thinking. All to play for!
Yes and congratulations. We need the power of creative thinking in this situation -- and not the endless, pointless belly-aching that has occupied too much of the mainstream media in recent days. Architects and designers are needed more than ever to improve things for us all.
Children of key workers have been going to school, as have their teachers and ancillary staff. The 'we are all doomed' predictions are neither accurate nor constructive.
The insurance spokesman cited seemed to imagine that Building Regulations establish who is responsible for what. With ignorance like this, is it any wonder that the insurance market is so wacky. The RIBA should be running virtual seminars for brokers and underwriters explaining what architects do, and what words like cladding actually mean. Of course the embarassing evidence and attitudes of the architects at the Grenfell inquiry has confirmed the view of the liability industry that architects are a very bad bet.
Time to end this conversation, I feel.
Thank you for your helpful suggestion.
