Top-name Brits shortlisted for UK ambassador’s residence in Beijing


"I think all of them will be able to write off this paltry sum" just means someone else has to pay for the work. Either staff working overnight and weekends, or other clients. Either way, it's an insult from the FCO who obviously don't understand what Architects do -or don't rate their efforts at much more than £10/hr , and the RIBA should make some heavy noise about it. It would have been far better to just have the beauty parade, a simple presentation of past work. The right Architect would be obvious when you asked them how they approached any commission. Anyone who can produce a sketch design after studying the brief for an afternoon, is the wrong man woman for the job. Mind you, who would have the FCO as a client, they seem to have been the worst-performing civil servants for at least a century. Hong Kong seems to have caught them on the hop, once again.
