The lesson of Newham's error of judgment

  • Comment

Being involved in the setting up of an architect/developer competition for a significant local town centre mixed development, I am grateful to Nicholas Boyarsky for explaining what went wrong at Newham (AJ 5.2.04).

The unanswered question seems to be why the judging proceeded at all when several of the key advertised participants were absent.

Hoping for the best is rarely a successful strategy. Standing up for a principle is usually uncomfortable, but sometimes, as in this case, it might have avoided protracted agony.
