Examine collaborations at The Architectural Association.
I wonder if selective memory will be mentioned. This a regular occurrence in arts project management. You vow never to work with organisation xyz having lived through a 6 month tug-of-budget-war and then 3 weeks later you are planning your next joint-adventure together.

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.
