Favourite things


Of the judges, Justine Frischmann, ex-Bartlett student, sometime rock star and now TV presenter, was the most forthright.Having fallen in love with the Sutherland Hussey Tiree shelter, she said she felt guilty because she had 'betrayed it'by then falling for the Ian Ritchie theatre scheme in Plymouth. She also made it clear that Eric Parry's urban and urbane office in London made her feel sick.Offices often have that effect on juries; two years ago Portcullis House got the cold shoulder from the judges, ditto last year's Richard Rogers Partnership Lloyd's Registry building.What will happen next year, when Foster's 'Gherkin' is in contention? That looks like the most likely commercial candidate for years.
