A new leaf

A large gathering of architects from Acanthus, the nationwide network of like-minded practices, held a splendid annual conference at the weekend, this year in Cambridge, complete with punting, site tours and an inspirational lecture from John Outram in his Judge Institute building. Other luminaries included Marco Goldschmied (who made a passionate plea for site taxation to take the sting out of land speculation), and Rab Bennetts (why don't we generate a new regionalism by using materials which involve local rather than international delivery?). It wasn't all lectures, however. Whether the porters at Pembroke College appreciated being woken at 4.30am to let people in seems unlikely.
