Riba's 32-strong Policy Management Board met last week for the first time under the new regime. It quickly addressed itself to the crucial issue of the day: are the two lions in the institute's coat of arms male or female? 'They're female,' insisted new president Marco Goldschmeid. Up piped a dissenting voice. 'No they're not, and it's the length of the mane which determines it,' a zoological fact of which the new president seemed sceptical. Perhaps the correct and responsive solution would be to have a balance between male and female leonine characteristics in direct proportion to the membership.
