Designing by stealth

Talking of Jean Nouvel, Hussey said the maverick Frenchman nearly gave him a heart attack during Land Sec’s first ever meeting with City planners for its One New Change project next to St Paul’s. ‘Jean walked in with a box and we all presumed it was a model of the proposed scheme. I nearly fell off my chair when he whipped off the lid revealing a model of a Stealth Bomber’. Crazy Frenchmen – don’t you just love them?
