The London chapter of the American Institute of Architects held its annual student charette at Call Print's Olympia premises on Saturday. The jury, which reviewed work by 10 teams, included John McAslan and Julia Barfield. Interestingly, the theme (verticality) did not result in a flood of tower designs, but more thoughtful urban responses to existing tall buildings and exhibition facilities in the Olympia area. As a counterpoint to the new ExCel centre in Docklands it looked pretty good.
