Chinese whispers

  • Comment

Can we expect security guards at the RIBA again? They were last seen there when then aspiring presidential candidate Peter Phillips came to a council meeting and there were fears of a demonstration. The next occasion could be during the China fest running from 11-22 September. Celebrating 'China Fortnight: Sustainable Building in China' this may rouse the ire of dissenting movement the Falun Gong. The RIBA has been famously tolerant of the group, accepting it occupying the pavement outside 66 Portland Place in strange meditative poses, to irritate the Chinese Embassy opposite. But will it be so easy-going if the persecuted group decides to storm the august architectural institution in protest at this collaboration?
