Choose justice, choose architects

I hope you will forgive a third letter in as many weeks, but Kim Franklin (aj 28.5.98) really must try to pull off her wig when she is writing for architects.

In this country, justice is obtained by barristers heaping exaggeration and much rubbish on each other. The truth is there of course, but only one side can be right in an argument. It goes almost without saying, therefore, that barristers must be wrong 50 per cent of the time.

How long would we survive as architects if we were given the same latitude? Think again Ms Franklin: when you need an adjudicator or an arbitrator, and want the correct decision rather than any decision, choose an architect.
