Awave of Brits descended on Berlin for the 'Mind the Gap' symposium organised by Doug Clelland. Speakers at the British Council-funded symposium included the lse's Ricky Burdett (and old 9H Gallery pal Wilfried Wang, an immaculate chairman), aj columnist Kath Shonfield, Brian Hatton (cracking jokes bilingually), Eric Parry, Ian Ritchie, Chris McCarthy and Roger Zogolovitch. The latter announced that he was the founding (and so far only) member of the 'Cold Bridge Club', which believes the cold bridge is perfectly ok - provided you are using biomass to heat your building, thereby producing no co2 emissions! The event was held in the World Cultural Centre, designed by Hugh Stubbins; after it fell down the cia paid for its restoration. So good they built it twice.
