  • Comment on: Why aren’t there more architects on TV?

    TV is the past.

    Podcasts and YouTube are the future! ;)


  • Comment on: Government faces growing calls to sack Roger Scruton from ‘beauty’ watchdog

    Bruce Buckland's comment 7 November, 2018 4:38 pm

    The full quote from Sir Roger's piece, for those who actually care about accuracy:

    “Many of the Budapest intelligentsia are Jewish, and form part of the extensive networks around the Soros Empire. People in these networks include many who are rightly suspicious of nationalism, regard nationalism as the major cause of the tragedy of Central Europe in the 20th century, and do not distinguish nationalism from the kind of national loyalty that I have defended in this talk. Moreover, as the world knows, indigenous anti-Semitism still plays a part in Hungarian society and politics, and presents an obstacle to the emergence of a shared national loyalty among ethnic Hungarians and Jews.”

  • Comment on: Flexible working for both parents is the key to gender equality in architecture

    Bruce Buckland's comment 27 September, 2018 1:55 pm

    This is a fantastic article.

    I moved to 4 days a week around 6 months ago and have never looked back. I did it to have additional time for academic study rather than for parenting reasons, but the effect is similar; it makes you work more efficiently when you are in the office and incentivises you to manage your time better. Nobody in the profession should ever be penalised for wanting to work flexibly, whether at interview or any other time.

    More of these well balanced, non-identity politics tinged articles please AJ.

    I agree with Duncan.

    John Kellett hits the nail on the head. Rather than driving down salaries by importing cheap labour, perhaps British practices could actually invest in training people more and pay them a better wage.

    Also AJ, you can't just ring up a few of your mates and present that as if it is representative of 'architects think X' or 'architects think Y'. It's deliberately misleading and bad journalism. If you want to know what architects think, do survey with a decent sample size, control for bias in the variables and present the results properly.
