Walls have fears

Ifear for my old friends at the Bartlett - but not because Christine Hawley is the hot tip to replace fox-hunting, Jesuit-educated environmental engineer Pat O'Sullivan as head of school. This recalls her pioneering appointment as the first female head of an architecture school at uel some years back. No, the worrying thing is that the unlovely Wates House school now finds itself surrounded by low brick walls and faux-Victorian bollards. I've heard of defensible space, but around the academic base of Bill Hillier, long-term scourge of Oscar Newman and Alice Coleman, this is surely going too far.
