Pleasantly sited on the Inner Harbour, the Hyatt Regency Hotel was the venue for this year's conference. Baltimore was essentially an industrial city until some twenty or thirty years ago. The Inner Harbour area housed warehouses, power stations and such like and could have been described as all that was unpleasant that this description could evoke. By a bootlace‐pulling‐up‐exercise, the city fathers decided that they would rehabilitate this district, and they have succeeded in the way that only the Americans know how to. The most remarkable addition to the skyline is a fantastic combination of art and functional architecture, the National Aquarium of Baltimore. To borrow the expression from the Michelin Guide, it is ‘worth a detour’, and a long one at that.
