Fashionable fringe


Ranking among one of the best fringe events was, as ever, Wordsearch's private members' Carlton Club.

As always, there was a hefty wedge of architectural, property and engineering luminaries, including Ken Shuttleworth, Glen Howells, Neven Sidor, John Assael, Arup's European boss Phil Dilley, the new CABE chief executive Richard Simmons, RIBA president-elect Jack Pringle and Astragal's old friend, the new AR editor Paul Finch. But one of the things that differentiated this year from many of the others was the addition of members from the slightly younger set, with 6a's Tom Emerson and dRMM's Alex de Rijke, who both won a competition organised by the Architecture Foundation and Piper to make it out to Cannes.

They clearly enjoyed the best of Peter Murray's hospitality.
