As a result of an international architectural competition a Conference Centre and Hotel was designed and built in Riyadh. It was the intention that they should set new standards of building in a country which had previously been almost totally closed to the West. This paper gives the story of the design and construction of this building and describes the types and standards of construction which were achieved. E. Happold, W.I. Liddell and P.A. Woodward

Discussion on the Design of the Channel Tunnel by H.B. Gould, G.O. Jackson and S.G. Tough

Mr. A. M. Muir Wood (Sir William Halcrow B Partners): I think I am possibly the only one here who has been concerned with each stage of this project from its rebirth, as it were, in 1959 until the date of its suspended animation in 1975. While I have been concerned with it on and off-mostly off-nevertheless, I have seen a number of changes and constant evolution.
