The write stuff

Will Alsop will be joining ex-Formula 1 driver Martin Brundle and human rights campaigner Shami Chakrabati at the University of East Anglia to pick up an honorary degree this summer. As well as housing Norman Foster’s Sainsbury Centre and Denys Lasdun’s iconically Brutalist campus, UEA is also famous as the UK’s academic centre for creative writing, with novelists Malcolm Bradbury and WG Sebold and Poet Laureate Andrew Motion having passed through the teaching staff. And anyone who has had one of Alsop’s sadly missed AJ columns inflicted on them will be hoping that the portly Palestra designer is updating his UCAS form and keeping an eye out for spaces on the undergraduate courses.
