An ovine affair


The opening of next summer's London Architecture Biennale, a bigger and better version of last summer's Clerkenwell extravaganza will, like its predecessor, have with a livestock theme. But following the bureaucratic nightmare of getting permission to bring cows into the City, next year will focus on more docile and smaller creatures.

No less a figure than Norman Foster is pencilled in to lead a flock of sheep over his Millennium Bridge and onto Smithfield Market. Apparently, however, architecture's most distinguished lord is wobbling, nervous about the possible headlines. So let's put him out of his misery by getting them out of the way now: 'Foster leads flock without a wobble';

'Wobbly bridge architect is followed by unprotesting flock';

'Foster's sheepish expression';

'Baa humbug'?
