  • Comment on: Hodder’s presidential agenda derailed by dysfunctional RIBA

    Ronald Gonshaw's comment 25 June, 2014 5:15 pm

    RIBA members particularly in the provinces have known for years that the RIBA seem to have its own agenda, which had little to do with architecture or promoting the profession. There has been apathy as the architect's role has been diminished and trivialised. The latest being the CDM change to designate the coordinator as the Principal Designer.

    But why a lawyer? Surely an experienced troubleshooter from the industrial or commercial sector is needed with organisational skills. In fact, the very skills an architect is supposed to possess but clearly is lacking in the RIBA.

  • Comment on: Exhibition standard

    Ronald Gonshaw's comment 8 March, 2012 5:41 pm

    I was there a couple of weeks ago and it does look attractive. However my son lives nearby and explained that people, particularly visitors, have real difficulty in understanding that it is not a pedestrianised area until they have to 'dodge' the traffic. Visual indicators to separate function is poor and try to spot the roundabout, looks neat, but not very visible. I suspect that it will be festooned with signs to make it clear that it is there.
