An introduction to live up to

And so to Stewart McColl’s bizarre SMC conference at the RIBA on Monday. Chief ringmaster was TV architecture pundit Max Hutchinson, who whipped the collected crowd into a frenzy. Introducing the great man, his voice reached levels of excitement not seen since Don King’s introduction of Ali at the Rumble in the Jungle. ‘Here he is… the man with the vision and the tenacity… the man with the leadership… Mr Stewart McColl!’ A totally bizarre event, one left almost believing SMC really was going intergalactic. Weird.
