Cook in demand


It is no secret that Cook is thinking of chairing the Architectural Association (AA), his old stamping ground, as a possible new career move. On the other hand, he has not been short of offers of consultancy, and indeed commissions. He has just won a new residential project in Madrid, to be known as the 'blue boat', and it seems possible that he will join up with Ian Ritchie (present on the night) to run a joint professorship of architecture at the Royal Academy in succession to Trevor Dannatt.

It was good to see Isi Metzstein at the party, one of life's honorary professors. He even had a gag about feeling his age: 'My legs have got Alzheimer's.'
