  • Comment on: Porritt: 'architects are failing to tackle climate change'

    simon norris's comment 2 July, 2015 11:41 am

    Porrit J is right on the money in his analysis of our profession's response to climate change. All strength to his albow. I take the view no building should be constructed or altered that does not conform to the latest advice from those who know.

  • Comment on: Global cities expert issues warning on affordable housing

    simon norris's comment 2 July, 2015 11:11 am

    Michael Berkowitz analysis may be skewed in the case of British cities, because we here have an adulation of property and ownership. This adulation spreads to estate agents and to TV progrqmmes. It has been in place for hundreds of years, since the days of Magna Carts, when the Barons used their freshly gained power to grab all the land. I think this may be the root of all evil, filtering down to all those who would do their dirty work.
    If M. Berkowicz can put this right, he'll habe done us a great service.

  • Comment on: Space standards adopted in radical shake-up for homes

    simon norris's comment 30 March, 2015 12:01 pm

    1. Are we to understand that there will be no stndards required for Flats?
    2. Are the providers of the standards not aware of the benefit of apartments in respect numbers of people housed?
    3. And of the consequent reduction in road traffic and and health of the occupants?
    4. And that the flats/apartments can well be built to 5 stories which will allow of flexibiliy in the layout of apartments.
    5 and that the roofs will become gardens for the pleasure of all the apartment dwellers. Simon Norris RIBA
