This will be Chris’s 20th MIPIM, and to mark the occasion he will be live blogging his experience this year for the AJ’s MIPIM Blog 2017.

Tuesday 14 March
I had a fun dinner last night in the old town with our American architect friends Humphreys & Partners. There was lots of chat about the impact of nationalism on architecture, along with some excellent banter, red wine and great food.
Monday 13 March
It’s Monday lunchtime at Gatwick for the easyJet flight and I’m sharing a coffee with Dan Gregory of Deloitte. Earlier I also bumped into David Partridge of Argent – the amazing guru of King’s Cross – who explained just how the stunning gas holders at KX have been restored. Our old friend Phil Hudson of Price & Myers is in the seat behind me – I’m looking forward to his party on Wednesday.
The idea of setting up Darling Associates was conceived over 2am beers in a bar on La Croisette, and here we are again 15 years later. So occasionally MIPIM deals do come to fruition!
