Hard day's night

REID Architecture invited a handful of lucky devils – plus a very grateful Astragal – to a charity auction at the famous Abbey Road studios in London last Monday. The bash for Cancer Research threw up a few surprises, not least that hostess-for-the-night Mica Paris is not a particularly great singer whereas pop princesses All Saints can actually hold a tune. Other revelations included whispers that REID had thrown its hat into the ring to design the new Olympic velodrome. Not so surprising, perhaps, given that the firm is already secretly collaborating on the proposed Glasgow arena/cycle track as part of the city’s 2014 Commonwealth Games bid. You didn’t hear it here.
