Added spice


Elsewhere on the party circuit it was curry week. PRP took over fashionable Indian eaterie the Cinnamon Club for its 40th birthday bash. Special guest Hugh Try and chairman Barry Munday made delightful speeches whose audibility showed that form really can follow function: the building was originally a library. After that it was on to Wilkinson Eyre's 20th anniversary party, on the upper floors of what was once a three-pointed, blue-walled behemoth above Earl's Court station, used by the intelligence services. The architect transformed it (for Land Securities) into a striking commercial landmark for some lucky future tenant. There was Indian food and champagne all round.
