This year Chloë Phelps challenged the tyranny of the open plan layout, and Susan Roaf shared her decades of experience in mitigating the impact of extreme temperatures. 

Meanwhile, Fred Pilbrow defended his scheme to replace M&S’s store on Oxford Street, and Shanice Abbey shared her thoughts on gentrification in Brixton.
