FEEDING THE AJ100
Ken Shuttleworth's practice
Make turned two last week and held a party to celebrate.
The firm - which is yet to complete a building - is clearly doing really rather well nonetheless, if the festivities are anything to go by. One of the oddest aspects of the very entertaining bash was the presence of a number of other architects, including representatives of Carey Jones and Sheppard Robson. This is presumably down to Ken's apparent strategy of allying himself with some of the corporate big boys in order to win lucrative work. And judging by the sensational canapés on offer - which included a fantastic seafood bar - this pragmatic business approach must be rather good for the bottom line.
