Can meetings like this not take place remotely? Plenty of conference call technology, document sharing and other ways to keep everyday functions running while adhering to social distancing measures
I am happy to say as a developer we need to do more to reduce our impact on the environment but when you urge members to reject findings of a consultation before the consultation has ended and sign up to ERs viewpoint who commit criminal damage as a basic act then yes extremists is the right word.
There are plenty of great architects working hard on schemes and ideas that reduce carbon emissions both during development and during the lifespan of the building and its there work that should be promoted by the AJ instead.
We should not be listening to extremists
Comment on: Awards should be about excellence, not messages
I agree with the sentiment that awards should be about excellence but I happen to think Goldsmith Street was excellent so I am delighted it won the Stirling Prize although the question being raised about if a private developer had built it is more than valid.
There was annoyance at the 2018 winner of the Stirling Prize because of the buildings budget but again it was in my eyes excellent and a worthy winner.
Politics should be kept out of awards they should be judged on merit only but they will always spark debate as people could make excellent cases for numerous projects to win awards when they don't even get shortlisted.
This is absolutely abhorrent, 72 people lost their lives and if criminally negligent behaviour is the reason then those responsible deserve the harshest possible punishment.
