Will Alsop may be regretting his call for the profession to follow his lead - resign from the RIBA and join the Architecture Foundation instead. This would be marginally more convincing if Alsop were not the foundation's chairman; as it is, it sounds like a rather sad cry for help from an organisation with money troubles. Actually the foundation would hate having large numbers of individual architect members - there is nothing for them. It will be interesting to see how foundation trustee Ricky Burdett reacts to Alsop's demand that Rick Mather's South Bank masterplan be scrapped. Ricky was a strong supporter of Mather and an adviser on the competition.
