  • Comment on: Interview with AHMM: 'We were starting to think it might never be our day'

    Geoff Haslam's comment 16 October, 2015 10:45 am

    There's nothing more honourable than building a good school. It is really great that AHMM's talent has been recognised in this way, at last...

  • Comment on: Assemble re-creates workshop for new Turner Prize show

    Geoff Haslam's comment 1 October, 2015 10:40 am

    I recently visited the Granby4Streets project with the Academy of Urbanism Great Street Award assessment team. We were delighted to see how the combined artist/architect relationship with the local community was bringing forward stylish affordable regeneration in terms of not only cost-effective refurbishment but also creating work/training opportunities and fostering the creativity of local people. A really admirable and successful endeavour for artists and architects. Assemble get my vote!

  • Comment on: Shortlist announced in £90m Bristol Arena design contest

    Fantastic short-list; let's hope the money can be found to build this long-awaited project, that will help take the economy and prominence of Bristol forward.

  • Comment on: Is FCBS the best design architect in Britain?

    Geoff Haslam's comment 14 October, 2014 4:54 pm

    I had the great pleasure of working as client to FCBS on a new academy in Essex. The users were delighted and so they should have been. The architects were great listeners and responded creatively to all comments, creating a beautiful school on a very challenging site.
    I am pleased that the scheme did not win an award as this often attracts unwanted attention to what is a 'sheltered' environment for the pupils

  • Comment on: Clegg pledges to build five new garden cities

    Geoff Haslam's comment 6 October, 2014 1:41 pm

    Congratulations to Nick Clegg for some sensible, joined up thinking on addressing the UK's massive housing need. This could be a vote winner for the Lib Dems, but needs careful 'selling' to those existing towns that are to be expanded and all those "nimbys" who won't want a new rail route near them.
