We have always wanted Richard to give a lecture on PROCUREMENT – that is, how does he get that stuff built? For, the realisation of so many Goodwin projects is not the result of pure design skill, but is also due to his ability to develop techniques to make possible what is not even thinkable for most of us. Whether this means re-writing the structural design manual, building the thing himself for a third the cost, or taking an angle grinder to some street furniture that has got the way, Goodwin has consistently demonstrated an ability to work outside the normal parameters of practice. What he knows about the rules is carefully deployed in the interests of breaking them.
