    In 1968, I started my first year in architecture. Almost our first studio project was when we were given two large sheets of cardboard, and told to make a ‘furniture thing’. The brief wasn’t much more specific than that, but I do recall it had to be sufficiently robust to take our weight. Perhaps I overdid the idea of robustness with my piece. It was terribly uncomfortable, but you could throw it down stairs without damage. I rather immodestly took a photo of my cardboard creation temporarily placed next to the Henry Moore ‘Reclining Figure’, which was itself removed shortly thereafter. I do not know if the two events were connected.
