A studied speech

A pleasant evening for all involved on Wednesday at the President’s Medals at the RIBA, where the standard of work on show was pretty impressive. One highlight was Jack Pringle’s speech at the beginning – where he unveiled more details of Norman Foster’s donation to a new travelling sponsorship. Astragal can’t be certain, but he’s fairly certain that Jackie used the same line about it being his ‘favourite evening of the calendar, because the building’s full of students’, last year. Not that imaginative really.
