Male-dominance at 'Tall Storeys?' conference

  • Comment

Despite all the hype, I remain unconvinced of the rationality, whether functional, urbanistic or sustainable, behind the enthusiasm for high buildings.

I suspect something more atavistic.

I note that every one of the 24 speakers at your 'Tall Storeys?' conference is male.

Does this suggest something about the psychology of highrise blokes? In your four-page report of the conference, perhaps you could usefully record the gender distribution of those attending.
