“We’ve spent so much time at home and in front of a device that ‘screen time’ feels more like ‘scream time’! Along comes a stranger, stirs up a whole load energy, drive and anti-chaos and we’re left with this wonderful feeling. I thought Adrian Webster would be another one of those speakers, he wasn’t. Adrian was the ignition to get us thinking clearly about how we get together again after lockdown. His virtual talk was the best thing I’ve seen in a long-time – this is screen time I would gladly engage with anytime.” Laggi Diamandi, Foster + Partners
