Dunlop to speak at American architects convention
Professor Alan Dunlop, visiting professor at the Scott Sutherland School of Architecture and Built Environment, is to give a presentation of his work in the education sector to the American institute of Architects annual convention in London.

Dunlop     will address the theme of Building Better Schools for the conference, drawing on the example of his own work at Hazelwood School in Glasgow.

Speaking of his appearance Dunlop said: "I'm honoured to be asked to present and as it is a reflection of my efforts to build up my profile and reputation in the United States in the past few years."

Dunlop has recently returned to the UK from a lecture and teaching tour of Kansas State University and the University of Washington.

The AIA conference will take place at Hammersmith Academy from November 9-11.

whatever…I’m sure the “porch” will even feature in pigeon hostelry weekly…relentless!will be interesting to see if those at GMA who spent years of hard work get any recognition in this talk….let’s hope no American architect wants to know anything beyond the pretty picture…

Linda, I've just looked at the GMA website, no harm to you but who are you kidding?

Look, ‘Hand Drawn by Monkies’ not sure what your point is but I quite frankly have hair to quiff and shoulder pads to puff...so little time for pointless bile.Am pretty sure the GMA designers sleep well and can look folk straight in the eye. Credit where credit is due is all I’m saying.

Oh darling, you don't know your Lindas, you're all of a muddle - a bit like your master's voice who thinks he singlehandedly designed that school. I'm off to crack America... I'm going global, and there's no stopping a deluded ego train!

Mr Dunlop has always been an egomeister, it's his nature but nothing wrong in that he has talent and Linda and the organ grinder always needs his monkey.

All hot air with no substance
If i remember right he said "that if GM+AD were not one of the worlds top ten practices in the next ten years he would eat his hat"

Statements like that just make people look a bit silly really

Im right in saying that he has only ever worked on 1 school ever yea ?

and even that was done by another practice yea ?

Wonder why that is ?

I think i prefer the Reiach and Hall approach where they let their buildings do the talking without the "grandstanding"
