High-Rise Housing - Past, Present, and Future
On 28 October 1987, in the elegant surroundings of the Cafe Royal in London, a l-day
symposium addressed the problems, both real and perceived, of high-rise housing. Speakers from a wide range of backgrounds considered the past and future for this once popular, but now much deprecated, style of residential development. Cyril Morgan OBE(formerly, Secretary of the Institution), who chaired the morning session, began by flattering the assembled gathering, suggesting that most were too young to remember the
Ronan Point collapse with any clarity!
