Election toast

Another nice informal party was thrown by Jack Pringle for his supporters, the night he learned he had won the RIBA presidential election. I noticed Ian Ritchie, Peter Cook, Max Hutchinson, Iain Borden, Kit Allsop and John Pringle (no relation) among the guests; RIBA types included George Ferguson and past-president Paul Hyett.

The president-elect has taken on an intriguing new project, quite apart from his Portland Place duties: he is taking over (from Ian Ritchie) the project to rebuild the Powell and Moya Skylon project on the South Bank. Jack worked in the Powell and Moya office so it will be a labour of love as well as an excellent reminder of the Festival of Britain.
