An architect’s success should be measured against whether it meets the brief not the zeitgeist, says Eleanor Jolliffe
The past year has been a tumultuous one in architecture. The Hackitt Review, ongoing Brexit negotiations, a sensational and yet poorly attended RIBA election, the RIBA president lambasting the profession’s most common procurement route… I could go on.
The ongoing conversations across the architectural press about the relevance of architecture and the lack of will to consolidate our position or define a new direction seem to mirror the national mood more broadly.
With Brexit fast approaching, the country (or at the very least its press) seems to be in a tailspin of existential angst: Who are we as a nation? What will we be without the EU? Will our economy continue to function?
