Use the Serpentine programme to support young British architects


Yes - this is a real problem, and operates at a number of levels in the profession. The ever increasing risk aversion that dominates procurement is stifling talent. The procurement process currently running for the refurbishment of the National Portrait Gallery asks applicants to provide examples of three national museum or gallery projects of over £20m in value, and an annual turnover of over £2m in order to be considered for the short list... Good job they didn't stipulate that for the Pompidou Centre, or even the Walsall Art Gallery for that matter... Great piece Ellis
