V&A's naive guidelines are entirely misguided

  • Comment

With clients like the V&A (AJ 6.11.03) who needs competition guidelines?

Well, everyone by the look of it. All six design teams of stature - with submissions apparently falling short of expectations and Charles Jencks commenting: 'Maybe it was naive to suppose there would be a fully developed scheme at that stage.'Absolutely!

Call me old-fashioned but by my reckoning that comes at stage C and a client committment to at least 30 per cent of the full fee.
