Interesting buildings need diverse designers

  • Comment

In his article 'Diversity doesn't mean variety' (AJ 12.10.00) Bruno Waterfield claims that encouraging racial minorities to join the ranks of the RIBA will not necessarily do anything to improve the state of British architecture. Has the past ten years of political analysis passed him by?

If we are to make any challenge to the unsustainably bland and homogenised McDonald's architecture that surrounds us today, we need to co-opt as many views and experiences (including lay opinion) as possible. Only in this way can we promote fair and equitable architecture.
