Brick has had a great resurgence in recent years. In contrast to the glass and steel of the hi-tech movement, or indeed the cheap aluminium cladding and render seen throughout so many developments throughout the UK in the last 40 years, the humble brick has been undergoing an architectural comeback.

Accompanying the endless property rises in the last couple of decades, there has been a change in attitude towards houses. They have moved away from being homes to becoming assets which owners want to make money from.  

Without wishing to undergo too much pain to the undercarriage by sitting on the proverbial (concrete panel) fence , the 'ROBexit' tug of war going on between contemporaries / admirers of the Smithsons and parties involved in promoting the redevelopment of the Robin Hood Gardens has an obvious but seemingly never discussed solution.

With Brexit maybe it is time for RIBA to review its recommendations for changing architectural education and go for something more radical.
