The RIBA conference in Bristol was quite a success, due more to the line-up of speakers than the somewhat poor turnout of delegates. Among the highlights was, rather unsurprisingly, a presentation given by the ever-colourful Roger Madelin, chief executive of Argent and the man who was brave enough to take on the King's Cross redevelopment. At one point he turned towards his PowerPoint slide run-through and said, of his own lecture: 'This is the most disjointed presentation I have ever seen - my colleague is in for a real bollocking.' Which was nice.
