IN THE GHETTO

ASTRAGAL

An extraordinary statistic has come our way, courtesy of David Morley Architects.

Apparently, the practice says, there is a registered architect for every 10m 2 in 'London's trendy' Clerkenwell. Few will be particularly surprised that there are loads of designers hanging out in the former watchmakers' quarter - you only have to watch the comings and goings at Zaha's favourite café Moro.

But the fact that you're likely to be nearer to an architect than you are to a rat if you visit this architectural ghetto will surely reinforce some stereotyping of the trendier end of this entertaining business?
