Lights… camera… Gherkin!

  • Comment

It has been brought to the attention of Astragal that a film called Building the Gherkin – by documentary-maker Mirjam von Arx – is doing the rounds. Friends of this esteemed organ have received the campest ever postcard promoting it. The front features three mugshots superimposed on a stock pic of the skyscraper. Whose faces? Well of course there's Norm (in a heroic pose), then there's the glamour from American super-client Sara Fox and finally there's über-planner Peter Rees. (What's that I hear you murmur? Ken Shuttleworth? Bah..). It is quite the funniest, kitchest bits of post we've seen for some time. For example, it features the line 'Will a new London building, nicknamed the Gherkin, become the landmark they all dream of?' Ooh.. the drama. If you want to see more of this wonderful stuff take a quick peep at www.buildingthegherkin.com
