Cubic meeters – 14.02.07

Architecture’s favourite Marxist Chris Roche is off to Cuba this month, the lucky little monkey. Whether it’s in some fifth column capacity or simply for a beach and cocktail break is still hazy, but what is clear that he has been in correspondence with the world’s favourite octogenarian commie, Fidel Castro. Apparently El Roche wrote, some time ago, to Castro suggesting proposals for a monument to ‘Karl, Che and Fidel’. Rather amazingly, el comandante, who has been seriously ill since last summer, took the time to write a postcard to Roche. Let’s hope he was sporting that magnificent Cuban tracksuit as he put pen to paper. Let’s also hope the former RIBA presidential candidate gets to Cuba before the scourge of capitalism shuffles off this mortal coil.
