Opinion: Hugh Fraser

The International Union of Architects (UIA) closed its triennial conference in Durban after a week of meetings, workshops, exhibitions and a generally stimulated contribution to the urban fabric of Durban. Its closing gesture was to award IM Pei, the UIA Gold medal for his contribution to architecture. The 94 year old Chinese American, renowned for his towering skyscrapers, is too frail to travel but it was received on his behalf by George Miller, a colleague from his office.
