In 1977, the Committee of Lloyd's invited six leading architectural practices to enter a two-stage competition for the redevelopment of Lloyds' HQ in London.

Architects Richard Rogers and Partners, with Ove Arup and Partners as structural and services engineers, won this competition by defining what was essentially a design strategy rather than a building. Our first article of this issue looks at this concept further.

Other articles include The National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, UK; An alternative approach to ultimate limit state design; The shear clauses for reinforced concrete in British Standard Code of Practice 110; Structural causes of non-structural defects.
