It doesn't surprise me neither Property Week or Estates Gazette paid much attention to a council housing Stirling Prize winner, despite the exceptional nature of that deserved win. Nor should it surprise anyone that housebuilder goliaths fail to re-tweet the good news. The RIBA needs to thaw relations with housebuilders and developers and quit berating them if it wants to influence their thinking. A diplomatic warm embrace is required after a Cold War lasting decades, affirming a view of the architectural profession as "arrogant" - which is clearly not the case when it comes to practices like Mikhail Riches, and many others. When it takes more than 10 years to get one street built, there are clearly also many more fundamental issues that need addressing. Less stick, more carrot.
Best bit of evidence-based architectural business advice I've read Hari. 'Think before you enter' might be a new motto for the profession - rather than Dr Johnson's aphorism 'the triumph of hope over experience'...
..er, sorry, Ferrari 250 GTO.
A very nice house, but the client's going to need a garage for that Lamborghini Muira.
I think we need to see Birds Portchmouth Russum's much more interesting Prawns which must be lurking somewhere in the AJ image library.
