One too many

  • Comment
While dining on North African food in Stockholm last week, who should Astragal run into but David Lewis, one of the main men at engineer Arup.
Lewis is working with Foster + Partners on the Khan Shatyry Entertainment Center in the oil-rich former Soviet country of Kazakhstan, and regaled me with tales of extreme drunkenness. One vodka-fuelled 'client meeting' culminated in Lewis being dressed in a traditional Kazakhstani robe to commemorate his birthday. He kept hold of it, too. 'Great for fancy dress parties,' he told me.
