ASTRAGLA

RRP directors Ivan Harbour and Graham Stirk talked to a packed house at the RIBA last Tuesday about several of the firm's key projects, including what is surely a Stirling shortlist tip for next year, the National Assembly for Wales. Titter of the night, though, came from an anecdote relating to a competition in a certain Catalan capital. RRP came second. The mayor, announcing the results, proclaimed: 'The Rogers scheme is what I would have as a girlfriend. The winner is what I would like as a wife.' Doubling up in the architectural bedroom - just how Astragal likes it.
