While architects insure themselves against conventional professional risks, it is harder to deal with risk-averse culture, argued C J Lim at the same event. He gave examples of competitions he had won, where the client had pulled out, worried about technical things like expanding walls or facades that responded to temperature change.

He noted how long it had taken for some of Archigram's ideas, dismissed as fantasy in the 1960s, to come to fruition. Still, help may be at hand in the shape of Argent, whose boss Roger Madelin spoke about development risk, and whose architect fellow-director David Partridge was in the audience. CJ is bound to get an interview!
