Chat time

  • Comment

Isee that Peter Cook, curator of the British Pavilion at this year's Venice Architecture Biennale, wants to 'put the chatter back' with his choice. Well, he was doing that last week at a press briefing on the event, commending director Kurt Forster's 'elegant' presentation on the biennale's content, then adding: 'It includes a great number of friends and enemies - certain people who I don't think have very much talent'. Running briefly through the cast-list for the British pavilion, he mentioned John Pawson - 'he's very amusing in private, which I hadn't expected at all'. No doubt there will plenty of chatter at the party thrown by artist Brian Clarke to mark Cook's retirement from the Bartlett this summer. Predictions he will go for the AA are gathering pace?
