When architects from Ahrends Burton & Koralek were planning a site visit to a rural project in Ireland, they were threatened with a requirement for protective clothing and a head-to-toe spray with disinfectant. Only when the ABK management refused, fearing the development of Gulf War Syndrome, did the Irish relent. True, the practice office is near to London Zoo, but the architects were eventually considered urban enough to need nothing more serious than the standard paddle through a footbath.
