May Day bouncers - a case of wishful thinking?

  • Comment

Pre- the Dimbleby lecture on May Day, the RIBA was closed with a couple of bouncers stationed outside in case the anti-global capitalism hordes attacked the building.

A case of wishful thinking, I suggest.Despite the fact that the big architectural practices tend to serve said global capitalism, whoever goes to Portland Place except architects and the three Tibet anti-Chinese embassy demonstrators? Best to relocate the institute to get the full publicity benefit from such interaction with the public.
