RIBA blasted over failed RSPCA competition


What's particularly galling is the way every time RIBA are called out for wasting everyone's time with these competition fiascos, they leap to defend themselves from any criticism, rather than listening to their members and accepting that there's scope to improve. Obviously there's a risk in competitions but the risk is meant to be that someone else wins, not that the competition as a whole is launched before anything is know about its feasibility but it's given a veneer of plausibility by being organised by RIBA. The whole RIBA competition system needs fundamental review, with input from members about what minimum standards should be adhered to before the call goes out.
