"The next to be created, as an idea, was the 'Talking' Order. This can be dated to the New Laboratory for the Consumer's Association, in Milton Keynes. The design of this project was taken to complete production drawings and Tender before aborting due to the 1991 property value crash and the boiling-up of consequent re-location policy disagreements within the C.A. The interior had been designed to a high level. More importantly, JOA had, by the cancellation, done enough work on techniques of iconic engineering to be confident that there was more than one cheap, quick and technically-intensive way to inscribe bespoke patterns, colours and images on internal surfaces, even curved ones. We can date the invention of the 'Talking' Order to 1990. It corresponds to the third of the Vitruvian Triad, of Venustas, Englished as 'Delight'."
