Why design awardsshould be virtual

  • Comment

The hornets were rising at the riba education awards. The grey suits were lined up in a show of force, but the new young voters were not happy: cynicism not criticism seemed rife. The New Labour design policy was wondering which ink line to follow - shouldn't it have been another night of celebrating young British design; the quality of work seemed high but the politics were brewing.

Forget the judging, all the schemes should be put on a web site and the most visited scheme over the following year should win a virtual medal. Indeed, maybe students could download last year's and re-present . . . they do already!
