A sight on site

  • Comment

Architecture Foundation director Rowan Moore is a refined, intellectual kind of a chap. So Astragal scarcely recognised him when a full-page portrait appeared in Land Securities’ lavish book celebrating the glories of Bankside. Bob Allies and Graham Morrison look suitably ascetic, surrounded by the concrete of their office, and other luminaries of the area are pictured in suitable settings. So who is this macho looking man, legs akimbo and arms firmly crossed, in a hard hat and high-vis jacket on a construction site? None other than Moore himself, looking quite the match for any stroppy builders working on his new Zaha-designed HQ.
