So what was the main topic of conversation among the architectural glitterati as they pickled themselves in the Carlton? Astragal would have expected the chit-chat to have focused on urban design or the ARB/RIBA war. Not so. The hottest subject on the lips of architecture's finest was whether King's Cross classicist Demetri Porphyrios had been under the surgeon's knife. Was that a facelift? The evidence was inconclusive. But Robert Adam was not shy in telling people how 'well' the Greek architect is looking these days?
